A Time For Renewal: An Assessment of British Columbia's Recreation Facilities

To be the 'Best Place on Earth', British Columbia must be the healthiest community on earth. Just as healthy living requires a new focus and on-going commitment, recreation infrastructure urgently needs a steady on-going investment. With sustainable maintenance and renewal funding, recreation facilities are one of the most cost-effective prescriptions for good health and engaged citizens.


“The need for a sustainable recreation infrastructure funding strategy has never been greater, and the BCRPA Recreation Facilities Assessment Study has provided a solid evidence base for the development of such a strategy. This report consolidates the research and makes a clear case for action by the province of BC and its municipalities.”
