Leisure Services 5-Year Master Plan

High quality recreation opportunities and park amenities have played a vital role in making Canton Township a desirable place to live, work, and play. Township leaders have again and again supported the efforts of the nationally acclaimed Canton Leisure Services Department as it endeavors to create great experience for Canton residents and area visitors. Canton's parks, recreation facilities, and community events continue to be enhanced through hard work and planning. One of the major components of planning is the development of a parks and recreation master plan.

The most current Canton Leisure Services Five Year Master Plan 2017 to 2021 (PDF) was adopted by the township Board of Trustees on October 17, 2016. This plan will be utilized by the department to guide decisions for planning future programs and enhancements to existing facilities.

The public was given the opportunity to submit input on a variety of topics including recreation programs and services they would like to see offered in the future. This feedback was used in setting department goals and objectives that meet the community's needs over the next 5 years.
