Facility Investment Principles
Calgary Recreation uses Facility Investment Principles to help guide decisions for investing in City-operated recreation infrastructure. These principles ensure investments are strategic and:
- foster healthy lifestyles through a range of accessible recreation opportunities
- provide for great public spaces where citizens can connect
- balance The City’s existing recreation infrastructure with growth and maintenance requirements within limited resources
As cornerstones for complete communities, we recognize the importance of recreation facilities for promoting the local economy, fostering cultural diversity and individual growth, and encouraging healthy, active lifestyles.
To learn more about Recreation’s strategic direction, see the Recreation Master Plan.
