Recreation, Parks and Culture Strategic Master Plan

This Recreation, Parks and Culture Strategic Master Plan is designed to assist decision makers, stakeholders, and the general public in understanding the identified needs and priorities related to recreation, parks and cultural services, programs, and facilities within the City of Guelph. The Strategic Master Plan is a balance between the needs and desires of the public and the realities of implementation – the end result being a Plan that meets the highest priority needs of Guelph’s present and future populations.

In developing the vision, goals, objectives and actions, efforts were made to ensure appropriate integration and consistency with other municipal projects and priorities (e.g., Official Plan Review, in motion, etc.). Given the strong inter connection between parks, recreation, and culture functions, it is essential that common strategies and coordinated implementation plans be established.

City Staff are reviewing the 130 recommendations.
