The Town of Midland is home to 26 community parks covering 321 acres, as well as over 18km of paved and natural trails. These parks and trails allow members of the community to enjoy a wide range of activities in a variety of environments including waterfront, urban forests, naturalized areas, and manicured landscapes. These parks and open spaces support a range of active recreation opportunities including baseball, basketball, beach-volleyball, skateboarding, soccer fields, tennis, pickleball, and disc golf. The parks also support more passive opportunities such as picnicking, hiking, swimming and dog walking with various children's playgrounds throughout the parks system.

The purpose of the Master Plan is to highlight the needs, goals and maintenance requirements for individual parks, recommend improvements for undeveloped park lands, and to develop a conceptual design for a Town-wide trail system that connects Town parks with neighbouring municipalities.

The Draft Parks and Trails Master Plan has been prepared by the consultant, Thinc Design. The draft plan, plan review and appendix (which includes survey results) can be view here:

Prior to presenting the final draft to Council on November 6, 2019, the public has an opportunity to submit feedback/ideas through Engaging Midland.

The opportunity to submit feedback is open until Wednesday, October 16, 2019.
