2022-2023 Parks Capital Projects

The Halifax Regional Municipality’s significant asset inventory is put to good use every day to enable service delivery to the community. Once an asset is put into operation, annual funding and regular capital investments are required to operate, repair and regularly rehabilitate that investment throughout its serviceable life. Please see the 2022/23 Capital Plan for a full list of capital projects, including details on the 2022/23 Parks Capital Projects. A summary of the 2022/23 Parks Capital Projects are outlined below for your convenience.
