Pioneer Park is one of Little Canada's largest parks. This large 33 acres community park was developed in 1991 and currently serves Little Canada residents and surrounding areas. As a community park, we want to make sure that the park is genuinely serving the needs of the city.  

The Phase I Pioneer Park Master Plan (PDF) is now completed. City staff is currently working on an implementation plan for the identified projects.

Community Engagement

To create a long-term vision for the future of Pioneer Park, it was important to provide an all-inclusive engagement strategy. The engagement strategy included three different areas. Those areas were - Youth Engagement, Focus Groups & Individual Interviews, and a Community Survey.The results and analysis documents of each of those areas can be found here:

Results from the engagement process will help direct and guide Parks & Recreation Commission and City Council on decisions for future Pioneer Park projects and enhancements.
