Pioneer Park Phase 1 Master Plan
The City of Little Canada initiated the Pioneer Park Phase 1 Master Plan in May 2021 to continue working towards “strengthening Pioneer Park as Little Canada’s Community Recreation Park,” as identified in the 2040 Comprehensive Plan.
The final master plan report will identify phased improvements at Pioneer Park including improvement narratives and imagery, cost estimates, implementation planning, ongoing maintenance considerations, and potential funding opportunities. This document will assist the City in capital improvement & maintenance planning, as well as pursuing additional funding sources.
The Phase 1 Master Plan builds on previous efforts to identify and implement improvements at Pioneer Park:
- 2018 Park System Master Plan
- 2020 Comprehensive Plan Update – Chapter 6: Parks & Trail System
- 2020 Resilient Communities Project Engagement
- March 2021 Joint City Council/Parks Commission Work Session – this meeting identified the parameters for the Phase 1 Master Plan and specific elements to incorporate.
Pioneer Park Improvements – we want to hear from you!
In order to ensure that the park is genuinely serving the needs of the city, multiple opportunities to provide feedback on the Phase 1 Master Plan are planned as part of the process.
