Some Edmonton residents fear a portion of park land near the river valley will be paved to make way for a parking lot.

Earlier this year, Epcor proposed the development of a new parking lot, elevated walkway and operations centre for its Gold Bar wastewater treatment plant in Gold Bar Park.

The utilities company plans to submit a rezoning application for the park land to the city within the next two months.

But members of the Save Gold Bar Park Alliance want that application to be rejected.
