Parks Master Plan

Effective January 1, 2014, the City of Vernon took over the governance of local parks from the Regional District of the North Okanagan. Please click here for background information and an explanation on the new parks structure.

In order to manage the local parks and outdoor recreation system responsibly, the City of Vernon has developed a Parks Master Plan. Over 2500 people have participated in surveys and events to provide feedback on Vernon parks. The public feedback was used to develop a vision and set direction for parks and outdoor recreation.
