Building Parks Together

Current Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Building Parks Together volunteer.


The City of Kitchener is working to improve some of our parks and open spaces so that they better meet the needs of the community. This includes creating a strategy for parks and open spaces, developing a master plan for Victoria Park, and planning improvements for specific neighbourhood parks. We are looking for a diverse group of individuals who want to provide feedback and share ideas and information about Kitchener parks and open spaces. Individuals would become part of a group of volunteers who are invited to participate in a variety of engagement opportunities, all with the goal of helping us create safe and welcoming parks and open spaces in Kitchener.


Volunteers will get to provide feedback on a variety of park and open spaces-related topics in a variety of ways, including:

    • completing online surveys on a variety of topics;
    • reviewing, and providing feedback on, concepts, plans, designs, drawings, and related documents;
    • participating in one-on-one interviews with City staff (in-person, online or over the phone);
    • participating in online or in-person focus groups or design labs to test the public’s response to preliminary concepts, plans, drawings, and ideas;
    • participating in online or in-person small group discussions to provide feedback, brainstorm ideas or problem-solve around emerging issues; and
    • participating in virtual or in-person site walks/site visits, which includes discussions regarding how the space might be used.

Volunteers will be notified as engagement opportunities arise and will have the option to participate based on their interests and availability.


Engagement opportunities will take place between now and the end of 2022.
