Parks Master Plan Follow-up Survey Now Open
The City of Regina is progressing toward a clear path to sustain, improve and develop our parks. The Parks Master Plan will lay out a 25-year roadmap for City parks and open spaces, and we need input to make sure we get it right.
Our 318 parks – more than 13 square kilometres of parkland – are visited all year long. From small parks used by nearby residents to large parks enjoyed by the whole city, Regina’s treasured green spaces host everything from dog walkers and picnickers to organized sports and events.
City residents were surveyed in fall 2021 about our parks including how they’re used, what residents value about them and what could be improved. Over 1,900 respondents told us that:
- Approximately four in five visit City parks at least once a week and roughly two-thirds use City parks year-round
- Almost the same number of residents enjoy unstructured activities like bird watching, picnicking or reading as those who access parks for organized sporting activities or attending community events
- Most park users are interested in sustainability, conservation, more interpretive signage and naturalized spaces
A summary of the feedback received from the fall 2021 survey is available on Be Heard Regina, where residents can now take the Parks Master Plan Follow-up Survey. This new round of engagement focuses on key topics including irrigation, naturalized spaces and priorities for improvements. The survey is open from April 14-28, 2022.
The Parks Master Plan will go to City Council for approval in fall 2022.
