The Reimagine Galleria project includes proposed expansion and revitalization of Wallace Emerson Park and a new Wallace Emerson Community Centre.

While this project design is in development, there will be opportunities to offer feedback through open houses, working group meetings, site walks, pop-ups and focus groups found on the Reimagine Galleria project page. Visit the information kiosk at the Galleria Mall for more ways to provide feedback and to keep up-to-date with the entire project.

The design of the park, community centre and childcare facility will:

  • Focus on the experiences, activities, and memories made at the park and the centre
  • Cultivate community identity
  • Integrate clear entrances and exits to, from and around the park and community centre
  • Accommodate the ways people access the park, like driving and cycling
  • Identify the future needs of the community
  • Meet the needs of children and families.
