A public engagement process is underway to develop the Chadburn Lake Park Management Plan. The City has hired 3Pikas Development Studio to develop the plan.

The plan is being developed over the winter and spring of 2016, and will be considered for adoption by City Council in summer 2016 (tentative).

Please send us an email if you would like to be kept informed about upcoming events. Announcements will also be posted on this page.

Process Update - May 2016

Since the public engagement exercises over the winter and spring, the Planning Team has been matching engagement input with existing City commitments, capacity realities, and best practices in the field of park management. A Draft Plan is being reviewed by the City's senior administration as well as Mayor and Council.

There will be various opportunities to see the Draft Plan, chat with planners, and provide feedback. With the Draft Plan, we will also release a "What was heard and how we considered your input" from the Ideas Fair and key-informant interviews. This will allow participants to see initial input and understand why or why not the planning team incorporated input in the draft plan. All input will remain anonymous.

In the coming weeks, we will make announcements regarding specific events and dates. If you have any questions, please contact or click above to join the email list.


Upcoming Engagement

Stay tuned for announcements regarding the next round of engagement activities!

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.
