Phase One Completion


The Township of Tiny is preparing a Recreation Master Plan. The purpose of the Master Plan is to provide “recommendations and strategic directions for the provisions of services and facilities" to 2028, while enhancing “the traditional parks and master plan process by integrating the concept of healthy, active living with long-term planning recommendations and strategies" (RFP, pg. 2).

Approach: Township provision = direct provision
Approach: Township partners with others = indirect provision

Definition of Recreation
