Provide Input on City’s Update to Parks and Recreation Master Plan

Published on: 2021/01/13 - in News

The City of Kingston wants residents’ feedback as part of the process to update its Parks and Recreation Master Plan, guiding how programs and services are offered and directs investment in recreational facilities.

“We are in a time when maintaining your physical and mental health is more important than ever,” said Lacricia Turner, Director, Recreation and Leisure Services. “COVID-19 may have changed the way some of our recreation programs and facilities feel – but our commitment to providing fun and safe recreation opportunities will never change.”

The Plan also looks at how the City can partner with other like-minded organizations, to offer more recreational opportunities to more people.

Community members can get involved by first reviewing the Parks and Recreation Master Plan and Needs Assessment Report on Get Involved Kingston. Then complete a brief online survey on the draft recommendations. Paper surveys are also available by request by calling 613-546-4291 ext. 1900.  You can share your stories on how you used parks, open spaces, recreation programs and services during COVID-19.

The public engagement stage of the Parks and Recreation Master Plan update will end on January 28 and the Plan and a public engagement summary will be submitted to the Arts, Recreation and Community Policies Committee and City Council in the first quarter of 2021.
