Rouge National Urban Park
The Rouge National Urban Park draft management
plan has been released by Parks Canada for public viewing and feedback.
The plan can be viewed online
and public feedback is welcomed.
Like most areas managed by Parks Canada, Rouge
National Urban Park will be required to have a management plan, a guiding
document that articulates a long-term vision, strategies, objectives
activities and targets.
The plan builds on a continuing and extensive
program of stakeholder and public meetings, a Youth workshop, First
Nations engagement, and the development of the Park Concept in 2012. Input
received from nearly 10,000 Canadians and over 100 stakeholder groups was
used in the development of the draft plan. In addition, the draft plan has
benefitted from the input of municipal and provincial governments and
other government agencies. It also acknowledges the almost three decades
of citizen engagement in the Rouge Park, the legacy of past plans for
various sections of the park, and current plans of the conservation
authority, municipalities, and the province.
A formal public engagement process on Rouge
National Urban Park’s draft management plan has been undertaken in July,
August and September, with public open house meetings planned for the
following dates and locations:
September 9 in Markham
Markham Museum at 7 pm
9350 Markham Rd., Markham, ON L3P 3J3
September 10 in Scarborough

45 Lawson Road, Scarborough, ON M1C 2J1
September 16 in Pickering
