Central Park

What makes Griesbach so great? So charming? So peaceful and idyllic? It’s  a safe, clean, quiet, friendly and absolutely stunning community to live and raise a family.

It’s up to all of us to ensure it stays this way.

  • An individual who is passed out in public
  • To report a harmed or abandoned child

GCL Neighbourhood Watch:

Griesbach Community League works closely with residents, Edmonton Police Services, the City of Edmonton and Canada Lands to promote a safe and welcoming community.

When residents recently expressed concerns of suspicious activities around Patricia Lake concerning cars, we worked with police to increase the number of patrols, which seems to have had a positive impact. We’ve also pressured authorities to take action in instances of damage to streetlights and monuments.

Many of you have expressed concern over the coyotes who make their home in Sanctuary Wood and are often seen in the neighbourhood. The City of Edmonton and the department of Fish and Wildlife are aware of the matter and have opted not to relocate the animals which they feel can safely co-exist with residents. As your community league, we advise you to exercise caution and common sense. If you have any encounters, please let us know as we continue to monitor the situation.

We also have a Neighbourhood Watch Google Group. Click here to check it out.

If you have any concerns or ideas please contact our Neighbourhood Watch Director.
