Parks and Recreation

New for 2017: Experience Meadow Lake

A new intiative of the Parks and Recreation Board in conjunction with other community organizations such as ML Tennis, the ML Lions Club, and the ML Golf Club, Experience Meadow Lake: Let's Play aims to increase recreation opportunities through reduced access fees. Check out the poster below for more information about programs available this summer.

To help provide the public with good park and recreational facilities, City Council created the Meadow Lake Parks and Recreation Board to include representation from the community at large. The Board includes members from the general public, City Councilors, and (since people in the rural community also use our recreational facilities) there are representatives from the Rural Municipality of Meadow Lake.

The Parks and Recreation Board allocates the Community Grant funding (Saskatchewan Lotteries). The Board may also be asked by City Council for their opinions on specific upcoming projects.
