planning our future
Parks and Open Space Strategic Plan

Our Parks and Open Space Strategic Plan is designed to promote stewardship and guide the development, maintenance, and renewal of our highly valued parkland and recreational areas.

The plan addresses our Official Community Plan objective of maintaining a diverse, high-quality system of parks and open spaces that serves a range of community needs while protecting our environment.
