Green Space in the City

Green space is paramount for livable, sustainable cities and the wellness of residents.

The city has its jewel park at Muskoseepi, but we need to be mindful of developing neighborhood parks to serve the needs of residents as the city grows and expands and the travel distances to the Bear Creek corridor increases.

Green space must be balanced with other development needs and include a mix of playground structures, trees, gathering spaces, and edible landscaping, with contemporary planning to maximize the impact of compact green spaces.

There are some areas of the city that need more neighborhood parks. As part of redevelopment in the future, our Planning Department will play a significant role in addressing this matter. I am committed to community consultation and study of best practices to achieve results that delight our neighbourhoods and meet their needs.
