The RDN completed the final phase of developing a Recreation Services Master Plan for District 69 (Oceanside). It was approved by the RDN Board in May 2018, as a guiding document.

One of the key recommendations from the 2018 Master Plan is the exploration of expanding services/spaces provided at the Ravensong Aquatic Centre. Work on the concept and design planning project has already begun and is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2020.

This project will include capital and operating cost estimates, a funding resource assessment, as well as a review of past expansion concept designs, parameters and priorities. The project will incorporate feedback from residents, user groups and elected officials.
