Red facility survey

The City of Red Deer wants to know who is using what with respect to its recreational facilities. The city has launched a recreation survey to gather information about participation, satisfaction levels as well as barriers that may prevent people from enjoying the various facilities offered, says Heather McLaren an administrative assistant with the city. Participants will be asked to share information about the ways they learn about recreation in the city and how they would like to learn about these opportunities. Participants must be 15 years of age or older and can complete a confidential online survey. The survey can be accessed at www.reddeer.ca. It will take about 20 minutes to complete.
