Parks, Trails and Open Space Plan

The 1991 Recreation Master Plan provided the basis for parkland standards and the park hierarchy that was incorporated into the 1996 Official Plan.  However, over the years, park services have been delivered with approaches different from the park hierarchy contemplated. This component of the Official Plan Review involves a review of best practices for parkland standards, recommendations for a revised parkland hierarchy, related policies for indoor and outdoor community facilities, and policy recommendations for a system of recreation trails for the Municipality.
