ABOUT THE PARKS & TRAILS STRATEGY

The 2022-2032 Parks and Trails Strategy builds on the successes of previous park plans and will guide the development and management of RDN regional and community parks and trails for the next 10-20 years.

The Plan presents the current portfolio of regional and community parks and trails (see Existing RDN Parks and Trails map), identifies trends and challenges that influence parks and trails, and summarizes the desires and aspirations for the parks system that were voiced during the project's public engagement process.

From here, it puts forward a vision and a series of goals and actions that will guide the future direction of both regional and community parks services.


WHERE ARE WE NOW?

Thank you to everyone that participated in the first round of public engagement in 2019/2020, before the COVID-19 pandemic.

The public and stakeholder input that was provided was used to understand what people think of existing parks and trails and to draft a vision for the future. The draft vision, along with seven goals and supporting actions form the basis of the Parks and Trails Strategy, and will guide RDN parks and trails over the next 10-20 years.

We are now in Phase 3 of the project, and we want to hear from you again!

    About this Project:

    The Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) is developing a Parks and Trails Strategy that will guide park planning, management and decision-making over the next ten years.  

    RDN parks and trails include both regional parks (such as Mount Benson Regional Park and Englishman River Regional Park), and many community parks located throughout the RDN’s seven Electoral Areas.  The RDN manages parks outside the municipal boundaries of Nanaimo, Lantzille, Parksville and Qualicum Beach, from Cedar in the south to Bowser in the north.  View a map of the RDN’s existing parks and trails.


    We are now in Phase 3 of the project: Public Review of the Draft Vision, Goals and Actions

    The draft Parks and Trails Strategy is built from information and community input received during the first round of public engagement in 2019-2020.  

    Based on the input received, a draft vision, goals and actions have been developed. This survey is asking for your feedback - Did we get it right?


    If you have not already done so, please review the draft vision, goals and actions shared on our Parks and Trails Strategy Get Involved RDN page.

    The survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete after reviewing the draft material. 

    If you would rather complete a paper copy please print and return to Ravensong Aquatic Centre (Qualicum), Oceanside Place (Parksville), or the RDN Administration Office (Nanaimo) by April 28, 2022.


    Thank you for your time. Your feedback is important!

Your feedback will help inform the priorities for acquisitions and improvements to parks and trails in the Regional District of Nanaimo over the next decade.

    Please note that while some parks, trails and open spaces are also provided by municipalities and the Province, this survey is focused on parks provided by the Regional District of Nanaimo. We recommend looking over the project overview before completing this survey.
