Calgary launches survey on long-term recreation plans

The City of Calgary wants residents to help shape recreation in the city for the next 10 to 30 years by providing their feedback in a new survey.

A new long-term strategic vision, called GamePLAN will direct the future of inclusive, equitable, and sustainable recreation services for decades to come, the city says.

“We understand recreation doesn’t mean the same thing to all people and we are actively exploring new ways to meet the needs of Calgarians in a sustainable way,” said Heather Johnson, director of recreation and social programs said in statement. “Whether it’s meeting physical fitness goals, spending time learning a new skill or craft, or engaging in cultural or community activities – we want to know what recreation means to Calgarians and what their goals are for public recreation in the future.”

Calgary’s public recreation system is made up of a network of service delivery partners, including facility operators, social recreation groups, and community service providers, which strive to provide quality, accessible, affordable and inclusive recreation opporunities, according to the city.

Starting Monday, Calgarians are invited to help reimagine public recreation by completing a survey at

The city will also be popping up at events and locations throughout the winter where Calgarians will also have the chance to engage.

Public engagement will be ongoing until Jan. 31, 2024, the city says.

Input from public engagement will be included in a report to city council in the summer of 2024.
