Playbook 2029: Spruce Grove’s Outdoor Sport Facility Strategy
Presenters: Paul Feser (Spruce Grove) and Justin Ellis (Stantec)
Spruce Grove’s outdoor sport facilities are more than just capital infrastructure; they are purposeful
strategies to help address some of our society’s most challenging issues - childhood obesity, nature deficit, physical literacy, family building, anti-social behaviors, community development and economic diversification. To address these issues, the City and its outdoor sport community must think strategically about the future of the outdoor sport system. This session looks at how Spruce Grove developed a playbook to guide outdoor sport priorities over the next 10 years. Its innovative planning approach, including its capacity based level of service assessment model is featured in the session.
