City seeking input to update Parks and Recreation Master Plan

Kingston City Hall

The City of Kingston is seeking community input as part of the process to update its Parks and Recreation Master Plan. The Master Plan guides how programs and services are offered throughout the City of Kingston, and directs investment in recreational facilities, according to a release from the City dated Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2021. It also looks at how the City can partner with other like-minded organizations, to offer more recreational opportunities to more people.

“We are in a time when maintaining your physical and mental health is more important than ever. COVID-19 may have changed the way some of our recreation programs and facilities feel – but our commitment to providing fun and safe recreation opportunities will never change,” says Lacricia Turner, Director, Recreation and Leisure Services.

Here’s how to get involved:

  • Review the Parks and Recreation Master Plan and Needs Assessment Report on Get Involved Kingston.
  • Complete a short online survey on the draft recommendations. Paper surveys are available by request by calling 613-546-4291 ext. 1900.
  • Share your stories on how you used parks, open spaces, recreation programs and services during COVID-19.

Public engagement on the Parks and Recreation Master Plan will close on Thursday, Jan. 28, 2021. The Plan and the public engagement summary will be submitted to the Arts, Recreation and Community Policies Committee and City Council in Q1 2021.
