We Feel So Welcome Here: Whalley Revitalization
Surrey, one of Canada's fastest developing cities, is experiencing challenges that are often associated with more mature urban centres (aging infrastructure, drug use, crime, slowed business and residential development, poverty, Aboriginal and cultural diversity, negative community identity, and barriers to participation in recreation activities). This session from the 2006 National Parks Conference and Trade Show in Saskatoon, highlights the Whalley Revitalization Strategy, aimed at enhancing the area and creating a more inclusive community. Learn how parks, recreation and culture was positioned as a key player in securing investments in recreation and parks facilities, leisure programs, and community development initiatives. Sponsored by the Canadian Parks and Recreation Association and Saskatoon Parks and Recreation Association.
