Then and Now Railroad to Parkland

Here is another Park that sits on the site of another railyard. This was once the site of the CN Railyard. Now it is a lovely green space in downtown Edmonton. They have some archive photos depicting the history of the railroad
Omw, what a difference, it must give the people so much more pleasure.

Love seeing repurposed land! Some of the un-used railways in our area are being converted to walking trails. Railroads mostly served the coal industry where I live and that is a dying industry.

It's great when the land can continue to be useful- moving from industry to green space is the best way!
