Breathe: Edmonton’s Green Network Strategy is a 30-year strategic plan that provides an opportunity for the expansion of Edmonton’s parks and open spaces. Designed by O2 Planning + Design Inc., the network strategy values open spaces to further ecological, civic and wellness functions for the residents of Edmonton. The strategy aims to revitalize the current parks, plazas, and recreational spaces through the implementation of three primary standards; connected, multifunctional, and open spaces. 


The network follows the River Valley and Ravine System as a framework for the new designed and planned aspects such as ecological parks, trails, and corridors. This will allow the city to be efficient with their land-use and provide new opportunities for more sustainable strategies, stewardship and engagement. The end goal for the Breathe project is to create and sustain a healthy city through the integration of ecology on a variety of different scales such as neighbourhoods, cities, and regional levels.
