This Recreation Strategy has been prepared to provide Council with a decision-making framework for recreation and sport. It has been prepared in consultation with the community and recreation stakeholders. The Recreation Strategy defines recreation very broadly. This is in line with the type of activities Whitehorse residents are choosing to participate in as part of their day-to-day activities and routines. The needs of people who walk in local parks or to work, compete in sporting competitions, or cycle with the family alongside local waterways, have all been considered as part of the project. This Recreation Strategy identifies actions to support physical activity. The strategy considers the role that Council might play to assist and encourage residents, their families, friends and colleagues achieve their physical activity aspirations.
