City council unanimously adopted the Beban Park master plan at a committee of the whole meeting May 11.
The update to the plan, first adopted in 1997, is intended to provide a flexible, land-use concept plan and framework that allows for park improvement options.
At just under 53 hectares, Beban Park is the Nanaimo’s largest, city-owned recreation campus and features key indoor recreational facilities, more than 20 outdoor amenities and large open spaces.
Over the past two years, the update planning process involved hundreds of citizens and park users and more than 25 license and stakeholder groups through input sessions, stakeholder interviews and two community surveys to determine how the park could improve in the future.
