Youth Outdoor Recreation Needs Assessment
March 2022 - The Town of Comox required a plan that assessed and provided recommendations for outdoor recreation and parks infrastructure for youth 12 - 18 years. This consultation report actively searched out and engaged youth to help identify priorities of outdoor recreation and park amenities. The report identified and connected with Comox youth, families and the community, to identify the needs. A special thanks to the local youth involved in the planning, implementation and decision-making activities for this project and Engaged Recreation Solutions for their work in compiling the report.
