The document will outline policy, priorities and development proposals for existing and future parks as well as look into regional trail networks. Those parks include Blackfoot Regional Park, Montney Centennial Park, Minaker River Park, Spencer Tuck Park and Sundance Lake Park.

So far, the Regional Parks Committee has heard that park goers want opportunities for outdoor recreation and healthy lifestyles for local residents as well as protection of sensitive environmental zones and unique geographical features.

“So far, this part of the survey tells us that we need to provide more information, better signage and improvements to the trail assets we do have,” says Mayor Lyman Clark, and Director of the PRRD Regional Parks Committee, “and that respondents have identified walking and hiking as the primary reason for a trail network.”

Residents who couldn’t make the open houses have until tomorrow, Tuesday November 15 at 4:30 to complete a survey online. Every submission is entered to win an iPod shuffle.
