RECREATION AND CULTURE MASTER PLAN

In early 2019, Didsbury Town Council requested a review of priorities for recreation and culture that were established in two separate planning documents: the 2013 Didsbury Recreation & Culture Master Plan and the 2016 Didsbury Memorial Complex Outlying Plan report.

MOUNTAIN VIEW REGIONAL PARKS, RECREATION AND CULTURE MASTER PLAN

In January 2022, Town Council approved the final version of the Mountain View Regional Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan, the culmination of a year-long process that saw significant community input, research and best practice identification to help guide the future of parks, recreation and culture in both our region and our community. This plan will be utilized by Council to help inform their decisions around investment in parks, recreation and culture for years to come.
