High River AB – The Town of High River has received GREAT feedback from residents through an online survey and December workshops. We are taking steps to create the Parks, Trails and Greenspaces 10-Year Plan. Residents are invited to a workshop on January 15 to continue sharing ideas about the future of our open spaces. You will also have an opportunity to review and comment on feedback received to date. Once again light snacks and refreshments will be served to participants:

Workshop Details:

Date: January 15, 2020
Time: 6 – 8 p.m.
Location: Munroe Barn

Some feedback so far includes the following:

  • Most people use our greenspaces for running and jogging followed by relaxing and dog walking
  • People strongly value our natural areas and place it as the #1 priority for the coming 10 years
  • Respondents agree that parks and open spaces make an important contribution to the Town
  • Respondents believe there are missing links and connections in the Happy Trail network
  • There is support for increased enforcement of dog bylaws in on-leash areas
  • A strong majority of respondents would like to see local raptor nesting sites protected
  • Respondents would like to see more hiking trails, cross country ski trails and interpretive loops
  • Most respondents are satisfied with maintenance of our open spaces

Please come to the workshop to share your ideas for the future of our beautiful parks, trails and greenspaces. Remember, it is YOUR PLAY – YOUR WAY!  There is still time to complete the survey – https://highriver.ca/network-with-nature/.
