City Looking To Hear From Public On Parks And Recreation

Londoners are being encouraged to help shape the future of parks and recreation in their city.

The City of London is asking residents to participate in an online survey, which will be used to help develop a Parks and Recreation Master Plan.  Those who participate in the survey will be asked how they use parks, recreation programs, facilities and sport services in London.

“Parks and recreation services have consistently been identified by Londoners as having a positive impact and providing great benefit to individuals, neighbourhoods and the entire city,” says Lynne Livingstone, managing director of Neighbourhood, Children and Fire Services.

City staff also intend to host input sessions with stakeholders and user groups “to establish key principles that reflect community aspirations” to help develop the master plan.  In addition to the survey, staff will look to participation trends, utilization levels, best practices, demographic changes and growth forecasts as guidelines for the plan.

Anyone in London who wishes to participate in the survey can find it by clicking here. The survey will remain open until July 23.
