Blackstock Recreation Complex Development Project

In April 2018, the Parks, Recreation, and Culture Strategic Master Plan was approved by Council.  The Master Plan is a municipal guiding document that provides a long-term vision of facilities and services relating to parks, recreation and culture over the next decade.

The Master Plan identifies that the highest priority with respect to capital investment for major facilities is the replacement of the single pad at the Blackstock Recreation Complex.  Council has recommended that a design for a new arena in Blackstock be included in the 2019 Capital Budget.  A request for proposal for the preliminary design and concept plan for the replacement of the Blackstock Arena has been made public.
