Help Shape Regina’s Parks and Open Spaces - Take the Parks Master Plan Survey

Regina has 318 parks and a total of 1,324 hectares of parkland – that’s more than 13 square kilometres. The City of Regina invites residents to complete a short survey on Regina’s parks and open spaces. The information collected will help to develop the City’s Parks Master Plan.

The Parks Master Plan will provide a clear path to sustain, improve and develop Regina’s parks. The plan will complement the recently completed Recreation Master Plan, which concentrates on recreation programs and infrastructure.  

Better understanding how residents use our park system, ways to increase winter usage and diving into issues that residents’ think the plan should focus on are a few topics we are asking about.

You are invited to visit Regina.ca to find more information on the project and the survey. The survey will take approximately five minutes to complete and closes on Monday, October 11.
