Student brainstorming sheet
We were at Monterey Middle School this week as part of our work on the Carnarvon Park Master Plan for the District of Oak Bay. We had a chance to meet with nearly 50 Grade 7 students to get their input on the park.
After a brief presentation, a group brainstorming exercise, and a “sharing out” of each group’s favourite ideas for the park, there was an opportunity for the students to vote on what they would love to see in the new park using sticky notes.
We’ve generated ton of great ideas that we can’t wait to incorporate into the master planning process as we move forward.
A big thank you to Mr. Friese and his class for welcoming us into their classroom and making the engagement session a success.

We are pleased to announce that Victoria’s City Council voted unanimously to adopt the Parks and Open Spaces Master Plan!
The plan is the culmination of a year-long effort to create a strategic level roadmap to help guide the planning, management, and investment into the City’s parks system for the next 25 years.
Developed by Lees+Associates staff in collaboration with City of Victoria staff, stakeholders and the public, the vision for the parks system is strongly rooted in environmental protection, inclusiveness, diversity, health and wellness.
We look forward to seeing how the implementation of the plan unfolds!
