Project Purpose

The Town of Midland is home to 26 community parks covering 321 acres, as well as 18km of paved and natural trails that offer peaceful and scenic views. These well-maintained environments include urban forests, naturalized areas, and formal landscapes. There are many places to enjoy physical activities such as baseball diamonds,basketball courts, beachvolleyball courts, a skateboard park, soccer fields, disk golf, and playground equipment for younger children. Additionally, the parks offer many picnic areas and covered picnic shelters for friends and families to use at their leisure. Many of these parks and facilities are wheelchair accessible.​

The objective of this study is to develop a Parks and Trails Master Plan describing future parks needs, goals and maintenance requirements for individual exi​sting parks, making recommendations for currently undeveloped park lands, and develop a conceptual design for a municipal-wide trail system connecting Town parks, both internally and to neighbouring municipalities.



Online Surveys

We are interested in surveying Midland residents, businesses, and park and trail user groups, on their use and opinions regarding municipally owned parks and outdoor recreation facilities, as well as the community trail network.

Your input is important to ensuring that the Master Plan provides directions on specific projects that will meet the needs of community residents, organized users, businesses, and visitors.

Please visit:
www.surveymonkey.com/r/midlandresidents to complete the resident survey. User groups and businesses are being sent a letter containing a link to their respective surveys.

Please watch for it in your email.​
