This document is a comprehensive map and list of all Parks & Recreation facilities, including but not limited those owned by the City of Thunder Bay. It also includes schools and facilities run by community groups. Each facility is listed along with a summary its features and the recreational activities available there, such as equipment for sports and amenities. The features are listed by code, but have been transcribed for this exhibit.

Although this inventory was assembled after amalgamation, many street names had not yet been changed and are still duplicated between the former two cities. (Thus, there are references to an Arthur St. in Port Arthur, etc.)
