City of Niagara Falls Encourages Residents to “Imagine” Recreation, Culture & Parks

NIAGARA FALLS, ON - The City of Niagara Falls is preparing a Recreation, Culture & Parks Master Plan to help guide the City in providing a broad range of active and healthy choices that engage residents, while positioning Niagara Falls to be environmentally sustainable, culturally vibrant and economically strong. Imagine Recreation, Culture & Parks  is a community initiative to involve people of all ages and interests to provide input on the Master Plan through the City’s engagement platform Let’s Talk Niagara Falls.
 
Through this public input and research, the Master Plan will be an actionable strategy that can readily adapt to changes in the community and emerging trends. In concert with other guiding documents (such as the Official Plan, Strategic Priorities and other relevant studies), the Master Plan will assist the City in making strategic investments in recreation, culture and parks to ensure a healthy community and improve the quality of life for residents.
 
The Master Plan will explore topic areas including:

  • Recreation and culture programs;
  • Indoor and outdoor recreation and culture facilities;
  • Parks, open spaces and trails; and
  • Related services, practices and special events.

We want to hear from you!
Public and stakeholder consultation is critical to developing a plan that responds to community needs. We want to know how you use parks, facilities, and services, as well as how we can improve public spaces and services for future generations.
 
In-person consultation events are currently impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic but may be scheduled in the future. In the meantime, input and feedback will be guided by virtual consultation techniques as the Recreation, Culture & Parks Master Plan is developed.
 
Over the coming months, there will be a number of opportunities to get involved including:

  • Completing a Community Survey.
  • Submit written comments/ideas to [email protected] 
  • Regularly visit the project page on Let's Talk Niagara Falls for updates.
