The City of Rossland is in the process of preparing a Recreation, Parks and Culture Masterplan, to guide the City's approach to planning and infrastructure into the future.

One looming problem is the City's beloved outdoor pool, which was built by volunteers in 1932, and is believed to be the oldest outdoor pool still in operation in BC.  It needs work, and the City needs to know more about how residents value the pool.

But that's only one item!  There is so much more — tennis, curling, hockey, pickleball, lacrosse, hiking and skiing and snowshoeing on local trails, and of course mountain biking, and much more not listed here.  Active transportation is playing a larger role in how people get around Rossland. 

Then there is the cultural component of the plan — how Rossland accommodates and encourages the arts locally — music, theatre, and the visual arts.

The City is inviting you to share your experience and thoughts.  There's an informal session at the Miners Union Hall on Monday, January 16, Starting at 5:00 PM and going until 6:30 PM. 

You can also voice your opinions in a pop-up session outside the Post Office on Tuesday, January 17, from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM.

Or, there's a formal information and input session at the Miners Hall, on Tuesday January 17, this time starting at 6:00 PM and going until 8:00 PM.
