Idea #31 - Storage for sports and recreation groups

Assist local sports and community groups in building new storage spaces in our local parks and recreation facilities.

"New Westminster’s local sports and community groups do so much for our community, and help bring our parks and facilities to life. It may not sound exciting, but assisting our local groups to ensure they have adequate storage will help them continue to do the great work they do in our city." Jonathan X. Cote

New Westminster is fortunate to have a strong tradition of sports and community groups who use our parks and recreation facilities. One challenge that is often cited by some groups is a lack of accessible storage in our parks and recreation facilities. Other communities have explored different options on this front, and put in a variety of storage containers and facilities to assist sports teams and other recreational users of public spaces. New Westminster should work with these groups to assess their needs and find ways to provide new storage options in our parks and recreation facilities.
