MOOSE JAW, SK – The City of Moose Jaw Parks & Recreation department invites residents to take our Trails and Pathways Master Plan survey.

The City has partnered with LEES+Associates for the creation of a Trails and Pathways Master Plan which will help guide the development of a comprehensive, destination-based trail network as part of a greater active transportation network within Moose Jaw over the next 10 years.

The survey questions provided in the link below are intended to gather information about your experience on Moose Jaw trails and will be used to develop the Draft Trails and Pathways Master Plan.  It is critical to have strong local input and your participation is vital in the development of this Trails and Pathways Master Plan.

“The development of the City’s trail network is dependent on several systems working in harmony and a dedicated plan is required to ensure our trails and pathway systems are fully interconnected while accommodating a wide range of uses,” said Derek Blais, Director of Parks and Recreation. “The goal of the Trails and Pathways Master Plan is to create a long-term strategy that will enhance the City’s pathway systems with a strong focus on improving trail connectivity, accessibility, and safety. We are excited to partner with the team at E. Lees + Associates Consulting as they bring extensive experience in planning and designing trail networks and we look forward to the launch our public survey this week.”

The Trails and Master Plan project is fully funded through a successful grant application to the federal government’s Active Transportation Fund and is intended to help support Canada’s National Active Transportation Strategy.
