Severn releases new Recreation Master Plan

Severn, Ontario: Township of Severn has developed a new Recreation Master Plan that provides a 15-year vision and framework for our recreation services and community facilities. This project was initiated in 2021 to identify the recreational gaps, needs, and interests of the community.

Over the past two years, thinc design consultants undertook a detailed review of the current state of recreation in Severn, including extensive public consultation to develop a customized plan for the Township. Council approved the final Recreation Master Plan on October 5, 2022.  

The Recreation Master Plan provides an overview of Severn's programs and events, facilities, parks, trails, and boat launches, and explores possibilities for the enhancement of recreation in Severn. 

"Our programs, facilities, parks, and trails connect the people, places, and landscapes of Severn. Making these connections is important in sustaining a healthy and active community. The new plan will allow us to respond to the opportunities being presented by the steady growth and development that is happening in Severn. New recreation users bring new opportunities for responsive and forward-thinking recreation programming, and the plan will ensure we continue to grow and enhance our services for our community."

Mayor Mike Burkett

The Plan contains needs assessments and recommendations for three service areas:

  • programs and events
  • facilities
  • parks, trails, and boat launches

It also provides direction on service delivery and includes a detailed implementation plan that includes the year of implementation and cost estimates.
