RECREATION & CULTURE MASTER PLAN

THE TOWN OF CARLETON PLACE IS PREPARING A PARKS, RECREATION, AND CULTURE MASTER PLAN (PRCMP)!

The Town of Carleton Place has embarked on the exciting endeavour to create a strategic Parks, Recreation, & Culture Master Plan for the Town. The Master Plan will be used to guide Council and staff in the provision and sustainability of parks, recreation and cultural facilities for the Town of Carleton Place.

What is a Parks and Recreation Master Plan?

A Parks and Recreation Master Plan is a strategic document that studies the existing park system, cultural and recreation programming, and identifies a planning blueprint to improve, protect and expand the Town's network of parks, facilities and recreational services for the future.

The Master Plan will provide both a long-term vision for the Town's park, recreation, and cultural system, and specific policies and standards to direct day-to-day decisions. It will create a framework that will allow the Town to respond to new opportunities as they arise, and ensure that adequate parks, facilities, and programs meet the needs of the Town's existing and future residents and visitors.

What is the Process? 

The Master Plan process will be prepared through a Three-Phase Work Program, which is anticipated to be complete by the end of September 2022.

How can I participate?

Throughout Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the project process, the Town will be hosting online surveys and an open house to obtain community feedback on the existing parks and recreation system within the Town. Feedback will be used to inform the review of Carleton Place’s existing parks, recreation, and culture system and will guide recommendations and next steps as we move forward with the study. Summaries and updates will also be posted to the Town website for those who would like to follow along in the process.
