Parks and Recreation Master Plan

The City of Courtenay is updating the Parks and Recreation Master Plan – the first major update for the plan in over 20 years. This master plan will inform planning and decision-making for our community’s parks, trails, recreation facilities and programs for years to come. The Draft Plan is available for public viewing (at the link above).

Public feedback on the Parks and Recreation Master Plan has concluded. City staff will present the final Plan to Council for adoption and the final version will be released in Fall 2019.
