Parks and Recreation Plan

In 2017, the City of Fort St. John, in partnership with the Peace River Regional District and the District of Taylor, created the first Parks and Recreation Plan for our community. This plan looked ahead 15 to 20 years and aimed to help the City make choices about things like parks, sports facilities, programs, and investments.

Then, in 2022, the City decided it was time to update this plan. Several ideas from the plan had been put into action, new maps and information were available, and there was a need to align it with other projects like the North Peace Leisure Facility Replacement Project. It was also wanted to share what they had achieved with the community and ask the public for their thoughts on what should come next.

This 2023 updated plan is based on feedback from more than 700 people and provides a fresh way to make decisions about parks and recreation for the next 10 years. This updated plan will ensure Fort St. John continues to be a great place for nature, business, and families.
