History

Date Posted to GIS:
2000
  • 2000: In early 2000 attempts were made to create a Parks feature class. This data set would consist of: all dedicated parks; green space and areas categorized by the OCP as PRO and; any green belts belonging to the DNV which required brushing, cutting and other maintenance.
  • 2000: A solitary Parks feature class was created and updated whenever a new park was dedicated. Additional information was added to the feature class such as unique park names and IDs.
  • 2006: The Parks activities database was integrated into the Parks feature class. The Parks feature class now includes all the amenities and activities for each park.
