Master Plan

Take a moment to think about Recreation in Wellington North

The Township of Wellington North is preparing a Recreation Master Plan to ensure that we are positioned to meet current and emerging needs. The Master Plan will guide the development of parks, recreation and cultural facilities, services, and programs over the next ten years.

Specifically, the Recreation Master Plan will examine needs and strategies related to:

  • Recreation facilities, such as arenas and community centres
  • Parkland and park amenities, such as playgrounds, sports fields and courts
  • Aquatic facilities such as outdoor pools and splash pads
  • Arts and cultural activities and amenities
  • Trails and pathways
  • Sports and leisure programs and special events
  • Service delivery, such as policy development, staffing, partnerships, and community support

The Master Plan will be guided by your input – you are encouraged to participate in the following consultation initiatives and help us identify priorities for recreation services in Wellington North:

1. Public Input Sessions.

We will be hosting public open houses to tell the community more about the Recreation Master Plan and to hear your suggestions. These are drop-in sessions that can be attended anytime between 6:30pm and 8:30pm – there will be no presentation.

Tuesday November 7, 2017 – 6:30pm to 8:30 pm (drop-in)
Mount Forest & District Sports Complex, Leisure Hall
850 Princess Street

Thursday November 9, 2017 – 6:30pm to 8:30 pm (drop-in)
Arthur & Area Community Centre, Upper Hall
158 Domville Street

2. Online Community Survey (www.surveymonkey.com/r/WNrecMP).

The survey asks questions about participation, needs and priorities. It takes about 10 minutes to complete and will be available until November 17, 2017.

3. Focus Groups and Interviews with community groups and representatives. Organizations will be contacted directly to participate.

A public meeting will also be held in early 2018 to review the Draft Master Plan.

Please check this website regularly and stay tuned for future updates!
