Description

The target measures our success in growing and maintaining participation in City-owned and managed recreation and culture facilities and programs which contribute to quality of life of residents.  The measure includes number of visits to leisure centres (including registered programs), the Forestry Farm Park and Zoo, outdoor pools, municipal golf courses, playground programs, youth programs, youth centres, Nurtien Playland,  and Remai Modern Art Gallery of Saskatchewan. 

While the City also provides financial and staff support to community-based organizations that offer a variety of sports, culture and recreation activities, attendance at third party facilities, events and programs are not included in the target.
