City-wide Sports Facilities Needs Assessment Study

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The city of Vaughan is one of the fastest-growing communities in Canada, with a population of more than 341,600 people. To ensure that Vaughan continues to be a great place to live, work and play, the City must carefully plan for the facilities and services current and future residents need.

That’s why the City of Vaughan is currently completing the City-wide Sports Facilities Needs Assessment Study to help inform the planning of parks and outdoor sports facilities like baseball diamonds, soccer fields, basketball courts and tennis courts. The needs assessment will review the City’s current inventory of sports fields and courts, explore opportunities to better utilize existing facilities and identify priority locations for new or upgraded facilities.

The City-wide Sports Facilities Needs Assessment Study will be guided by the 2018 Active Together Master Plan (ATMP) (PDF). The ATMP, originally prepared in 2008 and updated every five years by the City of Vaughan, provides guidance on the planning, distribution and decision-making for new parks and recreational facilities, including service levels. To ensure the long-term growth needs of Vaughan’s communities are met, this needs assessment will help ensure facility provision standards outlined in the ATMP recommendations remain relevant and support city-building priorities.
