Draft Parks & Amenities Strategy

Tell us what you think about the strategy for Mackenzie District’s parks and amenities.

The Mackenzie District has many local parks, playgrounds, trails and public toilets for locals and visitors to enjoy .

They play a big part in what makes the area a great place to live and visit.

We know however that there are several underdeveloped recreation spaces and that many of our trails have developed organically over time. Some of these trails are also not well-known or well sign posted. We also know that providing more connections, seating, shade or facilities like water fountains, furniture and toilets

We know however that there are several underdeveloped recreation spaces and that many of our trails have developed organically over time. Some of these trails are also not well-known or well sign posted. We also know that providing more connections, seating, shade or facilities like water fountains, furniture and toilets could make these spaces in even better.

If we improve our parks, trails, playgrounds and public toilets, locals and visitors would want to use these places more often.

That’s why we’ve developed the Mackenzie District Parks and Amenities Strategy and we need your help.


About the project.

Earlier this year we asked how you and the people in your community currently use the existing parks, trails, playgrounds and public toilets in the Mackenzie District, what you like about them, and what you think is missing.

We used your insights and the feedback from stakeholders to develop a strategy that sets out what we’ll do with our parks, playgrounds, trails, and public toilets in the Mackenzie District, including those communities outside of the main townships, over the next 10 to 20 years.

The strategy outlines:

  • The priorities and goals
  • The framework for decision-making
  • The level of investment needed
  • A priority plan for the delivery each of identified projects

We’ll also use the strategy to guide investment through the Long-Term Plan, annual budgets and the Land Development Fund.

Tell us what you think.

Before we finalise the strategy, we want to check in and see whether we’ve missed anything.

There are two ways you can do this:

  • Fill out a survey
  • Ask us a question

We’ll use your feedback to refine the strategy. Thank you for taking the time to help us deliver better outcomes for our community.
