The Ottawa Park and Pathway Development Manual was created as a reference tool to guide City staff, external stakeholders, the development community and their consultants in the design and construction of parks and pathways in the City of Ottawa. It was also intended to assist park planners and other City staff in guiding applicants through the review and approvals process for park development.

NAK’s scope of work included research of existing City policies and practices, comparative analysis of other municipalities’ best practices, consultation with a core steering committee, working sessions with both Technical and Stakeholder Advisory Committees, and the development of recommendations.
