City Hall Wants Parks And Rec Input
By 250 News
Prince George, B.C. – City Hall is asking for public input to help guide the decisions it makes regarding recreational and athletic programs and facilities.
Citizens are being encouraged to take part in the first-ever, comprehensive master plan for recreational areas called the Community Service Master Plan. The input is meant to help council prioritize decisions regarding parks and recreation, which involves things like swimming, team sports, outdoor play, gardening, walking and hiking.
City Park Planner Laurie Ann Kosec says “in order to understand the nature of our community, both now and in the future, we need to assess demographic trends and current and future community development. Where are kids today and where will they be in the future? What are the needs of seniors?
At present the City has amenities which include:
-Parkland occupying 7.5% of the land within city limits.
-More than 100 kilometres of hiking and walking trails.
-Over 50 baseball diamonds and sports fields.
-More than 200 recreation programs operated by community groups.
-Olympic and NHL sized ice rinks.
-A 30-foot diving tower at the Aquatic Centre.
Visit the Community Engagement Strategy on the City’s website to learn more about the development of the master plan.
