Take part in designing future plans for Parks, Trails and Greenspaces

HIGH RIVER, ALBERTADo you enjoy High River’s parks, trails and open spaces? What do you think they should look like in 2030? Come share your ideas at a workshop on November 26 from 6 – 8:00 p.m. at the Munroe Barn, Sheppard Family Park. Tell us what you’d like to see in future plans at the workshop, and by filling in an online survey.

“This is a great opportunity to get involved and we want to hear from everyone,” said Mayor Craig Snodgrass. “A few weeks ago, we engaged our Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council (MYAC) on the topic of the future of our parks, and I am extremely pleased by their level of enthusiasm and awareness of the importance of this opportunity. I hope that everyone who loves our parks will see the importance of filling in the survey and attending the workshop that kicks off the start of developing a plan for our parks for the next ten years.”

Who should attend? All residents and park users have a stake in shaping future park plans. The 2020 – 2030 Open Space Master Plan will determine such things as the importance of parks and trails and how to enhance their role in the community, the role of natural areas and identify opportunities to enhance High River’s green spaces. Be part of the discussion.

“High River has 700 acres of parks and greenspaces that are busy year ‘round offering everything from walking and cycling to kayaking, wildlife viewing and fun events,” adds Mayor Snodgrass. “By looking after our parks, trails and greenspaces, we are putting people first, as our parks play a key role in the quality of life for residents of all ages
