Consultation has concluded for this project. 

Council endorsed the Park Management Plans for Colwood Creek, Lookout Lake, and Ocean View Park at the May 9, 2022 Council Meeting

As an outcome of the Parks & Recreation Master Plan, we recently completed Park Management Plans for Colwood Creek Park, Lookout Lake Park, and Ocean View Park. This long-term strategic document will help guide future park infrastructure, upgrades, environmental considerations, and recreational use. 

  • During Phase 1 we asked for your ideas and feedback.
  • During Phase 2 we shared early concept directions and discussed what worked well and what could be improved. 
  • During Phase 3, we gathered feedback to help shape any necessary edits to the final plans. 

Council endorsed Park Management Plans for Colwood Creek, Lookout Lake, and Ocean View Park at the May 9, 2022 Council Meeting.


The next round of Park Management plans will look at Latoria Creek Park and Havenwood Park with public engagement beginning this summer.

  • Phase 3

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

    Council was provided with an update on the Park Management Planning process at the December 6 Committee of the Whole meeting. During this meeting, Council was briefed on the engagement summaries from Phase 2 and next steps were identified.

    Community input and feedback from Phase 2 will inform the refinement and further development of the Park Management Plans during Phase 3. Draft Park Management Plans for Colwood Creek, Lookout Lake, and Ocean View Parks will be shared with Council in early 2022. Following Council review, the draft plans will be referred to stakeholders and provided to the public for review and comment. Input will be used to finalize the plans. It is anticipated Park Management Plans will return to Council for consideration and endorsement in March 2022.

    July - August 2021

    • In-person engagement events took place in each park during the month of July. The community was presented with several information boards and shared their thoughts with sticky notes and sticky dots.
    • An online questionnaire for each park was open for comments until August 13. We had over 350 participants complete online questionnaires

    Feedback from the in-person engagement events as well as the questionnaires will help provide insight while the draft Park Management Plans are being drafted. Review the presentation Council received to get a great overview of Phase 1. In October, we will begin reaching out for your feedback once again to gather your thoughts and feedback!
