Parks, Recreation, Arts & Culture Master Plan

A 10 to 15 Year Plan for Parks, Recreation, Arts & Culture

The project started with a detailed review of past plans, public input from other surveys and sources, and interviews wtih Mayor and Council.

Other Surveys and Questionnaires

Surveys and questionnaires are tools we often use to gather public input on important issues and projects. The links below are for questionnaires and surveys currently open and accepting responses.

Centennial Park Off-leash Area & Dog Parks

The District of Mission’s Parks, Recreation & Culture Department is seeking input on off-leash areas and possible enhancements to the existing off-leash area at Centennial Park. This brief questionnaire takes under five minutes to complete and information will be used to help decide how to best balance improving Centennial Park and possibly establishing an additional off-leash area in Mission.

Staff will also be collecting input in-person at the Centennial Park off-leash area over the next two weeks.
