Cranbrook, BC (May 27, 2016) -- The City of Cranbrook invites the community to participate in the creation of a new Master Plan for Idlewild Park.  The City was successful in receiving funding for dam and park improvements and is inviting public input to prepare a plan.

Last spring over 1000 Cranbrook residents enthusiastically participated in the Idlewild Park Community Survey identifying how the park is used, and priorities for improvements. The Master Plan team is building on that valuable input as part of the Idlewild Master Plan process. Anyone who missed out on the survey, has new ideas, or wants to continue being part of the process, is welcome to come join the conversation!

A workshop will be held on Tuesday June 7, 2016 from 6:00 - 8:30pm at the Memorial Arena in the warm viewing room.

The event will provide an opportunity for community members to share perspectives on what makes Idlewild Park special, generate a vision and ideas for park improvements, and discuss how partnerships in the community can bring the vision to life.

If you would like more information about the master plan process, please contact Chris New, Director of Leisure Services at (250) 489-0251.
