The main goal of this strategy is to plan and sustain a healthy city by encouraging connection and integration of open space at the site, neighbourhood, city and regional levels. Some key points that apply to Oliver include:
- The total amount of municipal parks and other publicly-accessible open space is limited. With the projected population increase, improvements in the amount, quality and functionality of open space is increasingly important.
- There needs to be an emphasis on multifunctional open spaces.
- Open space acquisition is limited by land availability and high cost.
