Kildonan Park was established in 1909. In 2013-14 landscape architectural firm Scatliff + Miller Murray were commissioned to come up with a new vision for Kildonan Park and their report, the "Kildonan Park Master Plan," was published in January 2015. The plan identifies several issues that, when implemented would improve functioning and enjoyment of the park: originally design plans from its inception called for a boat launch area/marina however this has never been fully realized as further study regarding riverbank erosion must take place first; they recommend also decreasing proximity of parking lot entrances to natural areas which could decrease safety while walking through these spaces; limited storm water retention capacity is another issue addressed by SMM's proposal.
