Community Parks Week

Celebrating Our Greenspaces
October 1 to 7
Planning and Information Guide


The response from Ontario's municipalities each year to officially proclaim October 1st to 7th as Community Parks Week has been tremendous. This demonstrates each communities active commitment of "Protecting Tomorrow Today".

Consider Your Own COMMUNITY PARKS WEEK Proclamation

Whereas parks, open spaces and natural environments are essential to the health and ecological integrity of our communities; and

Whereas parks and open spaces beautify our environment and create social benefits for individuals and groups; and

Whereas active living and recreation opportunities provided from our communities parks and open spaces provide significant preventive health benefits by contributing to a full and meaningful life for the overall well being for citizens of all ages; and

Whereas parks provide natural teaching theatres where people gain a respect and understanding for ecological responsibility and commitment, contributing towards the restoration, protection and conservation of the environment for today and for the future; and

Whereas the provision and preservation of parks and open spaces are both an investment and essential for our communities collective quality of life;

Therefore, be it resolved that "your municipality, school, organization" designates October 1st to 7th as "Community Parks Week" and is encouraged to actively participate in this annual province-wide community initiative through participation in a variety of outdoor activities and experiences which respect and protect the environment.
