Riverstone Dog Park Updates

An entrance gate will be added to the outside of the ‘small dog area’ so that residents and their tiny furry ones are able to come and go without the hustle and bustle of the larger area.

It is important to remember that the Riverstone Dog Park may be closed during wet and rainy days in an effort to protect new seeding and sodding. We understand that this poses an inconvenience to dog owners in our community but we are trying to prevent the damage and muddy conditions that we were faced with this past spring. Happy and safe dogs and owners are our priority. Short closures should help us prevent major damage and the required long closures and additional maintenance costs.

We appreciate your feedback and have been intent on listening to the concerns of our community.

University Drive Twinning – Community Stadium to Sunridge Boulevard West

The City of Lethbridge is in the process of the design and construction of the second two lanes of University Drive West from the existing four-lane section just south of the University of Lethbridge Stadium access to Sunridge Blvd and the new access to RiverStone. Currently the project design phase is at 75% with construction predicted to begin April 2019 and run through to approximately November 2020.

University Drive is a major north-south arterial road with connections to the University of Lethbridge, Whoop-Up Drive, and Highway 3. The construction of this road will provide needed access for continued growth in southwest Lethbridge and ultimately provide the main connection for the third river crossing.
