Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan

Stakeholder Involvement

All organizations with an active interest and involvement in parks and recreation facilities are encouraged to participate in all public consultation activities. Many are also involved through the following activities.  

Stakeholder Focus Groups

A series of 13 focus groups were held with key Parks, Forestry and Recreation stakeholders in spring 2016. These provided opportunities for in-depth discussion with individuals and groups representing youth, seniors, people with disabilities, equity-seeking groups, facility users and permit groups, and partners, sponsors and donors. Focus group summaries will be posted as they become available.

Focus Group Summary

Stakeholder Advisory Group

The role of the Stakeholder Advisory Group (SAG) is to provide guidance on proposed study approaches, concepts, and materials, to share a sense of their membership / network’s perspectives, and to provide feedback on other project-related matters. The SAG will meet 3 times and is made up of 20–30 representatives of organizations that have either a citywide lens / mandate and/or represent a large recreational user group.
