Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Moncton is developing a comprehensive Recreation Facility and Programming Master Plan. The plan will guide City Council and staff to evaluate the current provision of recreational facilities and programming in Moncton and plan for the future in a way that reflects the values and needs of the community. The Master Plan will provide a framework for the management and development of recreation facilities and programs, infrastructure, resources and investment over the next 10 years.

PROJECT OBJECTIVE:

The project goal is to create an inventory of recreational facilities and programs and determine what are the gaps and assets

The City of Moncton is developing a comprehensive Recreation Facility and Programming Master Plan. The plan will guide City Council and staff to evaluate the current provision of recreational facilities and programming in Moncton and plan for the future in a way that reflects the values and needs of the community. The Master Plan will provide a framework for the management and development of recreation facilities and programs, infrastructure, resources and investment over the next 10 years.

PROJECT OBJECTIVE:

The project goal is to create an inventory of recreational facilities and programs and determine what are the gaps and assets, while at the same time, considering recreation trends and best practices. This project will reflect Moncton’s growing population with consideration for an all-age, all-ability and all-culture approach.

The public engagement activities for this project will gather information related to personal and family use of recreation/sports facilities and programs, in order to develop a clear understanding of how facilities are presently used, who is using them, and in which activities residents participate. This understanding will contribute to the development of a future framework for recreation facilities and programming planning. This is an exciting opportunity for residents to provide valuable input into the master planning process at an early stage.

THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO PARTICIPATE:

1) Respond to the survey! It should take about 5-10 minutes to do; all you need is a valid email address. The deadline to submit feedback is August 31st at noon. Click on the Survey tab below to get started.

NOTE: If you wish, you can also register as a participant in the Let's Chat Moncton public engagement portal (click on the blue button on the right). This will allow you to submit your feedback for this project, and others in the future. Registering is quick and easy - less than 2-3 minutes! (Just remember to include a space in your postal code.)

2) By clicking on the 'Pin the Map' button below, you can tell us where your favourite recreation activity is located... and you don't need to register.

3) Are you a facility operator or activity programmer? A survey has been created just for you, so the project team can draw a clear picture of what is being offered in our community. Choose your questionnaire in the Survey tab below.

4) If you have any specific questions or suggestions, you can add them in the Q&A tab below, and a member of our project team will respond - either publicly or privately - within 2 business days.

Your feedback will help the project team get started! A second round of public engagement activities is planned in early summer. The final report is expected to be presented in early 2021.

COVID-19 CONSIDERATIONS:

Face-to-face sessions were initially planned to consult residents on this topic. However, due to directives issued by the provincial government relating to social distancing, it was decided to postpone these and focus on online components for the time being. Thank you for your understanding and collaboration.

In this space, you can ask specific questions about this project.

Members of the project team will either respond publicly, therefore allowing anyone else visiting the site to read through the published information, or answer privately.

We receive a notice when a question is submitted; we’ll get back to you within two business days.

    I downloaded an Active Transportation Master Plan in summer of 2015. I am wondering if all trails on that plan, including 'Shared Trails' through the 'Vision Lands' and from Gorge Rd through to Irishtown Nature Park, are in the works or still in the plan. Thanks.

    Hi there, 

    And thanks for your question. The area you're referring to is still part of the trail plan.  However, any trail construction on the 'Vision Lands' located north of Wheeler Blvd (Crowley Farm Road area to Mapleton Road) will only occur as the area begins to grow and develop. 

    Have a great day, 

    Nicole
