Electric utility vehicle for Cardiff Park

It’s a first for Cardiff Park: an electric John Deere Gator that will be used for park maintenance. The County received a grant from the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre (MCCAC), to acquire the unit. 

The Gator utility vehicle is 100 per cent electric and offers an emissions-free alternative to traditional maintenance equipment, ensuring an environmentally responsible approach. Residents enjoying Cardiff Park, while the Gator is working nearby, will appreciate the reduced noise level. 

Muted Maintenance

“Not only will this vehicle perform a range of maintenance activities, it will also contribute to the park’s peacefulness and resident enjoyment,” said Sturgeon County Mayor Alanna Hnatiw. “It will be a great addition for both our community and our valued green spaces.” 

The electric vehicle will be used for managing waste, weed trimming, preparing shelters for rental, and for other general park maintenance duties. 

Funding Partners

Funding for this project was provided by the Government of Alberta, through the Electric Vehicles for Municipalities Program (EVM), administered by the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre (MCCAC). The MCCAC is a partnership of Alberta Municipalities, the Rural Municipalities of Alberta, and the Government of Alberta. The Government of Alberta provided funding for the Electric Vehicles for Municipalities Program.
