Chadburn Lake Park Management Plan


Draft Plan Comment Period Now Closed


The Draft Plan was released June 9th and public input was collected until June 30th. We would like to thank all those who contributed their input. Now the Planning Team will be compiling comments and information for the creation of the Final Plan. Please stay tuned for more information.

How Your Input Has Been Used So Far

Since the public engagement exercises over the winter and spring and early summer, the Planning Team has been matching engagement input with existing City commitments, capacity realities, and best practices in the field of park management. The cumulative effort of this is the Chadburn Lake Park Draft Management Plan, which is ready for public review. Additionally, we have created a "What We Heard and How We Considered Your Input" document, which outlines what we heard at previous consultations and how we used your input in the Plan. 


The Chadburn Lake Park Plan has been developed over the winter and spring of 2016 by 3Pikas Development Studio. A Draft Plan is ready for review. The Final Plan will be considered for adoption by City Council in summer 2016 (tentative).

Past Engagement

Draft Plan Events

The City held three events in June 2016 in order to promote the release of the Draft Plan and get public input. Approximately 500 people attended our "Pop-up Park" on Front Street, booth at the Fireweed Market and BBQ at the Rotary Centennial Bridge!

Ideas Fair

The City held an 'Ideas Fair' on February 3, 2016, to share information and gather input on the development of the plan. Attendees were given multiple different methods to provide input, including telling a six-word story, identifying challenges and solutions, or even using the “selfie station.”

We were very pleased to be able to give space for 7 different partners to have displays and distribute information. These included Ta’an Kwäch'än Council, Yukon Conservation Society, Contagious Mountain Bike Club and several Yukon Government departments. 


An interactive display was installed at the Canada Games Centre from December 8 to 20. The display garnered lots of great input on what's special about Chadburn Lake Park. The input will be used to help guide management decisions for the park.

We asked people to complete the sentence, "i heart Chadburn because..." Over a dozen full sheets were completed with a great variety of constructive comments. Visit our input page to review the comments we received.
