Project Background

In October 2020, the Township of South Frontenac retained thinc design to assist in the development of a multi-year Recreation, Parks and Leisure Master Plan. The purpose of the plan is to provide the Township with long-term direction for the provision of recreation and parks services to community residents and visitors.

The Master Plan will support Staff and the Recreation Committees in providing informed directions and recommendations to Council that are:

  • Tailored to the needs of South Frontenac;
  • Community driven;
  • Evidence based;
  • Align with best practice of the industry.

The expected completion of the project is fall 2021.

Current Public Engagement Opportunities

We need to work together to create a strong plan for  South Frontenac that will allow the community to enjoy parks, lakes, recreation programs and facilities for years to come.

After over 18 months of public consultation, research, development, and revisions, South Frontenac’s Recreation, Parks, and Leisure Master Plan is in its last stages of development. Final public comments are being accepted until May 15th at www.EngageFrontenac.ca/recreation-master-plan, after which revisions will be completed and the plan will go before Council for adoption in June.

For more information, connect with Tim Laprade, Manager of Recreation & Arena by email or by calling 613-376-3027 ext. 2231.
