Stouffville has updated its Leisure Services Master Plan! The updated Master Plan celebrates the Town’s successes to date and addresses future needs and opportunities for leisure, recreation, sports, and culture.

The Master Plan is an opportunity to maximize access to recreation services, cultural activities and events, and guide investment in the years ahead. Originally prepared in 2018, an update to this plan was required in light of strong growth in population and diversity the Town had been experiencing.

Master Plan recommendations provide guidance to the Town Council and staff for sustainable future development, redevelopment, on‐going maintenance and enhancement of Stouffville’s parkland resources, open space, natural environment, recreation facilities, and recreation programs and services.

The Town commissioned Sierra Planning and Management to review and update Leisure Services Master Plan & Strategic Plan.
