Yet another survey.

City of Burlington looking for feedback on Recreation Services Department’s priorities

This began with the creation of a “Draft Framework for Community Recreation in the City of Burlington.”

The draft framework will be the guiding document used by the Recreation Services Department (formerly the Parks and Recreation Department) in determining how tax dollars are invested in future programming, facility development and partnerships.

Splash pads and pools are vital for many parents – are there enough of them?

The framework will provide clarity, transparency and consistency in how we allocate resources for recreational services. This will lead to more efficient processes such as the facility allocation including scheduling of ice, pool, gym and sport field time.

Before the framework can be finalized, the City is looking for input on where the Recreation Services Department’s priorities should be.

As for that “draft” – wasn’t included. We have asked for a copy.

The online survey can be found at and will be open until Nov. 12, 2019.

Results of this survey will be shared with Council in an upcoming report in December.

The survey is quite short – not complex.

Chris Glenn, Director of Recreation Services explains: “We want to ensure we’re offering the type of programs and services that benefit the population at large. It’s good to check-in with our residents to make sure we’re focusing on the right areas of recreation. Your input is important to shape our Framework for Recreation for our City.”
