An upcoming survey conducted by the city aims to collect feedback about Medicine Hat’s parks, trails and natural areas.
The survey, an offshoot of previous Parks and Recreation Master Plan work, invites area users to share thoughts on amenities currently available, offer suggestions for future amenities and rate overall satisfaction with such areas.
Specifically seeking feedback from park, trail and natural area users, city representatives will be conducting the surveys in-person at several different sites, including but not limited to Kin Coulee, Southridge Community Park and the Ranchlands neighbourhood.
“We want to capture results from people who are actively using our open spaces to help us understand how best to move forward with our parks,” Kara Brake, special projects co-ordinator and acting business and innovation manager with the city, said.
Participants will be selected at random. Participation is not mandatory, however those who choose to take part will be provided a gift of thanks, which includes a single-admission day pass to Big Marble Go Centre, a map of city trails and more.
The survey begins Friday and runs until Sept. 5.
