About the Recreation & Open Spaces Master Plan
Building dynamic, active and healthy communities.
At the MD, we recognize the importance of recreation opportunities in building dynamic, active and healthy communities. To ensure the efficiency and effectiveness of our contributions toward helping communities thrive, we’re in the process of developing a Recreation & Open Spaces Master Plan. The master plan is a strategic document that’s designed to guide the development and delivery of recreation programs, services and facilities across the MD over the next ten to twenty years.
The MD offers some recreation programs and indoor and outdoor spaces directly, but also in partnership with local associations, societies, and neighbouring municipalities.
To do this recreation and open spaces planning, it is important to hear from community members. Your thoughts and opinions are essential to this project. Between October 31, 2023 and November 27, 2023, we’re conducting an online survey to gather community insights. Paper copies of this survey are also available at MD offices upon request.
After November 27, your responses will be combined with all others received, and the overall findings will be used as the master plan is developed. Some analysis will be reported according to smaller sub-groups such as the age of those responding or how long you have lived in the area. All responses will remain anonymous.

The following definitions may be helpful as you answer the questions.
The specific activity and program space that is part of a facility. For example, a gymnasium inside a larger recreation centre is an amenity while the recreation centre itself is a facility. A stand-alone arena is a facility and the arena ice is the amenity. A separate field at a sport field complex is an amenity.
Facilities are indoor and outdoor buildings and spaces that are provided for a particular recreation, sport or cultural purpose. For example a park, sport field, or recreation centre are called facilities.
Indoor and outdoor facilities and amenities.
Activities that people do to improve their physical, social, intellectual, creative, and spiritual well being. They can be for fun or can be competitive. There is a wide range of examples that can include: crafts, fishing, hockey, softball, reading, gaming, yoga.
These are the support components that help make the use of the amenities better. They can include lighting, spectator seating, change rooms, and so on.
