The Rollie Miles Athletic Field District Park master plan will include an assessment of the park's physical condition, demand capacity and functionality. The park renewal priorities will be based on community needs, public consultation, standards and regulations (accessibility, safety, health, sport and environment). Priorities may include utility replacements, improved circulation, access and parking, improvements to park amenities including sports fields, facilities, and required supports for park operations.
The first phases of public input were completed in 2013 - 2016. Residents, park users, community organizations and other stakeholders identified how Rollie Miles Athletic Field District Park is used, community priorities and ideas for improving use.
Using the information gathered, we evaluated the opportunities and constraints in the priority areas of:
- Indoor and outdoor community amenities
- Pedestrian movement
- Vehicle access and parking
- Naturalized environment and green space
A draft park master plan was presented to City Council in 2016. They requested more information with the development of a Functional Program for a small community recreation facility with an aquatic element.
The Functional Program will describe the prioritized activities, their spatial requirements and the relationship between spaces to support a small community recreation facility.
An updated park master plan will be presented to Council in Winter 2018.
