Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

How do you currently use Whitby’s parks and recreation facilities? Do you want more tennis, pickleball, or basketball courts in our community? Do you want to see more funds invested in our arenas, pools, waterfront and/or the marina? The Town is preparing a new Parks and Recreation Master Plan to guide future recreational services, infrastructure, and investments - and wants to hear from you!

Once complete, the Plan will present a vision, as well as long-term goals and objectives, for how the Town will continue to meet the recreational needs of our growing community well into the future. It will be an actionable strategy that addresses:

  • the type and location of future park and recreational opportunities and amenities required to support Whitby's quality of life
  • service standards, policies, and programs for recreation and parks facilities and services
  • required improvements to parks, trails, and open spaces
