Halifax Common Master Plan

I’m on the Common!
The municipality is planning for the future direction of the Halifax Common.

As the city and region continue to grow, this dynamic public space will only take on more significance as a major park and recreation area serving local residents and all people in the Halifax region. The time has come again to take a comprehensive look at the future of the Common, through a master planning process that will define management policies, guidelines for open and green space, as well as concepts and action plans for physical renewal.

The outcomes will serve as a blueprint for future improvements, to guide the City in provision of open space areas, parks, recreation programs and facilities for the short and the long-term.

How might the Common best serve the needs of people who live in Halifax region?
The visioning and planning process for the Halifax Common will explore this question and more.

How can I get Involved?
Over the next few months there will be a range of opportunities for public input to inform improvements to the Halifax Common Plan, including: public meetings, conversations on the Common, social media, email, and online surveys. We want to hear what you value most about the Halifax Common, and what you think is most important that we address in the plan.



Engagement Workshops

Our first round of public engagement sessions were held on Jan. 31, 2018 and Dec. 11, 2017. Thanks to everyone who came out to share what you value most about the Halifax Common.

Feedback from the December engagement has been captured and summarized in our What We Heard document.
