MP: Banff Recreation Facility Master Plan


This Recreation Facility Master Plan, developed to help achieve the recreational objectives outlined in the Banff Community Plan, and form the future of the community’s parks, fields, playgrounds, trails and indoor facilities, comprises seven guiding principles:

  • Increase the use of recreational facilities, parks and trails (Banff Community Plan objective)
  • Maximize municipal facility access potential; multi-season, day and evening
  • Increase operating cost recovery
  • A comparable local inventory of facilities (including private and other agencies) to other communities
  • A planned but flexible system of open spaces, trails, and parks
  • Recreational facilities that also appeal to visitors and events
  • New Town indoor facilities will follow Municipal Sustainable Building policy

It seeks to evaluate parks and recreation facilities within the unique context of Banff townsite and its current (2013) inventory, which includes partner, private, and neighbouring facilities.
