The public is invited to an open house later this month to review the draft City of Cranbrook Parks and Recreation Master Plan.

The open house is on Thursday, Nov. 26, from 3 pm to 9 pm, at Western Financial Place to allow the public to review the draft recommendations that have emerged from this process, the City of Cranbrook said in a press release.

The open house will also provide residents with an opportunity to provide input on the draft Master Plan.

“The City of Cranbrook has been busy updating our Parks and Recreation Master Plan. Starting in April 2015, our consultants, Urban Systems, engaged the community to provide feedback.”

A community survey was undertaken and nine visioning workshops were conducted, including two general public sessions. The public was also invited to send emails or letters at any time.

The Master Plan will guide the planning, design and use of parks, trails, recreation facilities, and community programs/services for the next 10 years. The last plan was prepared in 1995 and set the framework for the facilities we now enjoy, such as Rotary Way Cycle/Walk trail, and the new arena and aquatic centre.
