Open space defines The Bridges, encompassing almost one-third of the lands. There are six park and plaza areas. Within the 3.5-hectare Murdoch Park, there is a promenade, soccer fields, toboggan run and the Bridgeland-riverside Community Association hall.
A play park with a tall tree merry-go-round and climbing wall is a popular stop for families. The park also includes a commemorative brick wall built with bricks from the former General Hospital.
A new park in Phase 3, St. Matthew’s Square, will have a direct sight line to St. Matthew Lutheran Church at the top of the toboggan hill.
