Origin

(September 8, 2016) Report from the General Manager, Parks, Forestry and Recreation

Summary

Parks Forestry and Recreation is currently developing a Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan, as directed through the City Council-adopted 2013-2017 Recreation Service Plan (2012) and Parks Plan 2013-2017 (2013).  The Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan will update the Recreation Facilities Report, which has successfully guided major recreation infrastructure development since 2004.

 

The Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan will prioritize investment in parks and recreation facilities over the next 20 years to ensure that residents have continued access to high quality parks and recreation facilities.  The Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan will guide the location and creation of new parks and recreation facilities, the renewal of existing facilities, and recommend strategies to optimize the use of facilities in order to best meet local and City-wide needs.

 

The Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan development is being informed through a comprehensive process that considers demographic data, the condition and utilization of City facilities, recreation and leisure trends, legislation such as the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, as well as public and stakeholder input gathered through extensive engagement. The Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan will include implementation and financial strategies to support long-term success. The Plan will be reviewed every five years and updated based on progress, current data and emerging needs.

 

The purpose of this report is to provide an overview on the progress of the project, to provide a summary of consultation findings to date, to introduce guiding principles and emerging directions for the Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan, and to outline planned consultation activities that will take place in Fall 2016. The final Parks and Recreation Facility Master Plan Report will be submitted to City Council in Spring 2017.
