two light industrial parks, commercial areas and numerous recreational parks.
Kingsmead Park is a 2.3ha parcel in the Kingswood neighborhood in the east of the City
of St. Albert. The parcel has been subdivided and districted as Park (P) under the City’s
Land Use Bylaw. The Site is located on the Pineview II/Kingswood Area Structure Plan

The site currently has residential development to the north, Kingswood Boulevard to the
west and surround to east and south with agricultural lands. The agricultural lands
around the site are not included in the scope of the project. Development of these lands
is not within the foreseeable future.
