Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan

The Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan will guide the City over the next ten years. Through research and public input, the Master Plan will examine service levels in all communities across the city and establish priorities. The Plan will confirm program, service and facility needs and will identify strategies to assist with implementation.

The Master Plan will be an actionable, working document that can readily adapt to change in community values and address emerging trends. It will assist the City and local stakeholders in making strategic investments to ensure a healthy community, improve the quality of life of residents, and encourage a strong economy and sustainable environment.

Public and stakeholder engagement is critical to developing a plan that responds to the unique needs of Welland and its communities. We want to know how you use parks, facilities, and services; as-well-as how we can improve public space and services for other generations. There are many ways to get involved, including:

1. Community Discussion (Open House) - April 2nd

2. Public Survey - Ongoing

3. Virtual Forum (Ideas) - Ongoing

4. Interactive Mapping (Places) - Ongoing

5. Q & A - Ongoing

6. Stakeholder Workshops (Invite Only) - April 15th & 16th
