Parks and Open Space Planning

The value of open spaces

Open spaces, parks, trails and recreation are essential to a high quality of life, community health and well-being.

Sturgeon County’s open spaces include

  • natural ecosystems including forested areas and wetlands
  • parks and playgrounds
  • trails and sports fields


It’s important that we protect and cultivate these spaces as they contribute not only to our economic well-being as a municipality, but also is a driving factor in the quality of life for residents.

A well-planned open space network can attract visitors, investors, and also new residents.

When planning new open spaces, parks, or trails, Sturgeon County seeks input from all stakeholders.

Developers, residents, and County Administration, all play a role in transforming undeveloped land into the park spaces that are used by residents and visitors throughout the County.
