With your help, the City is completing Park Management Plans for Latoria Creek Park and Havenwood Park. This plan will guide decision-making and amenity upgrades for park trails, connectivity, environmental conservation, park maintenance and more over the next 10 years.
Have Your Say:
Visit LetsTalkColwood.ca/OurParks and review the Early Ideas Map and List which have been generated from community feedback received during the 2021 Parks & Recreation Master Plan, early input from stakeholders, discussion with City staff, and technical analysis of opportunities and constraints within each park. These early ideas will be refined through your input and further analysis.
There are separate questionnaires for Havenwood Park and Latoria Creek Park. Each questionnaire will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. Your input will be used to refine the early ideas and generate a draft concept plan and recommendations for each park in Fall 2022.
The City of Colwood's first Parks & Recreation Master Plan (PRMP) was adopted in April 2021. This plan will guide improvements to our parks over the next 10+ years by providing overall direction and guidance for managing parks and recreation resources, infrastructure, and investment. The PRMP is a strategic document that does not undertake detailed planning for each park or facility, but rather. provides recommendations for the entire parks and recreation system. This plan is intended to be a living document that grows with the community. Recommendations of the plan will be reviewed and adjusted annually to explore new opportunities and prioritize investments that reflect the needs and desires of the community.
The following six guiding principles support realization of the vision by providing a framework and specific goals for policies and actions. The guiding principles act as a 'checklist' for proposed improvements; if a proposed project meets these principles, it will support the vision and intent for the City of Colwood Parks and Recreation system.
- Celebrate Our Natural Character
- Strengthen Our Connectivity
- Protect + Enhance Our Environment
- Encourage Our Community Health + Wellness
- Nurture Our Partnerships
- Promote Accessibility + Inclusiveness
