Leisure Services Master Plan

The Municipality of Port Hope is preparing a new Leisure Services Master Plan to identify community priorities for parks, recreation and culture services over the next ten years.

We want to hear from you: Say How You Play!
Public and stakeholder consultation is critical to developing a plan that responds to community needs. We want to know how you use parks, facilities, and services, as well as how we can improve public spaces and services for future generations.

Current Opportunities:

  • Community Survey- is now closed, thank you for your feedback

Happening in the near future:

  • Attend a future Public Open House to learn about the project and to provide your input. 
    Note: In-person consultation events will be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and will be scheduled at an appropriate time in the future.

A Public Input Session will be held near the end of the planning process to present the Draft Master Plan and gather additional feedback. Stay tuned for updates!
