​​​​​​The process for determining program recommendations begins with an assessment of the park type, size, neighbouring land uses, and has regard for the projected total supply of parkland in the area.

Preliminary facility and programming recommendations are established through the application of a general Programming Guide for facility placement through the Community Design Framework (CDF) document at the Secondary Plan Stage, and further refined through preparation of the Com​munity Design Guidelines (CDG) at the Block Plan stage of the development process. Final refinement of facility programming for proposed park sites is made at the plan of subdivision stage, where detailed designs are created and implemented through the subdivision's development.
