Rollie Miles Athletic Field District Park was identified as a priority for park renewal in the 2015-2018 Capital Budget. The District Park renewal program is a long-term strategic approach to renew district parks in mature neighbourhoods and is focused on improving various park elements as part of an overall master plan based on community need.
In 2013, a master plan process was initiated for the Rollie Miles Athletic Field District Park to determine the renewal targets including the physical condition, functionality and demand capacity of the park. Recreation needs were identified through public and stakeholder consultation and operational requirements.
In 2016, the community vision and project considerations were presented to the Community and Public Services Committee as a draft Master Plan Concept and Report. This document serves as the Parks Master Plan for the Rollie Miles Athletic Field District Park site and is supported by visuals and diagrams that present the recreational needs identified through public and stakeholder consultation. On September 20, 2016, a draft of the Master Plan was presented to City Council.
At this meeting, the following motions were passed:
1. That Administration develops a detailed program that includes capital costs and a business case, for a small recreation centre including a swimming pool in Rollie Miles Athletic Field District Park; and
