Parks Planning

The City of Vaughan’s Parks and Open Space Planning department is responsible for statutory and non-statutory land use planning, strategic and master planning, specific policies, bylaws, guidelines and developments that establish the City’s parks and open space service levels.

Through collaboration with citizens, internal and external stakeholders, we facilitate the design, assembly, implementation, review, inspections and approval of new urban growth-related developments associated with City-wide parkland, recreational facilities, open spaces, and the recreational trail network.


Our services provide protection and preservation of the natural environment and ensure the continued supply of active and passive recreational service provisions which is consistent with developing integrated, complete and livable communities, while meeting the City’s planning and growth management strategic objectives.
