Parks and Recreation -where to from here?

August 14 is the deadline for submissions on TDC’s Options for the Future document for Mapua’s Waterfront. Hearings are next week, deliberations and decisions some time later.

So, where to from here?

I’m hoping that TDC will endorse and commit to a vibrant play ground/recreational space for MApua’s waterfront park . Beyond hoping, I’m also reading up on a 25 year forward looking plan for Vancouver’s Greenspaces – called VanPlay. Wow, YVR’s parks board is truly innovative and visionary, as they say , using parks and recreation as a means of connecting people to themselves, to one another, and to nature.
