A requirement of the Conservation Covenant was the development of a management plan, which was completed in January 2013. The year-long public process provided input into management of the conservation, cultural and recreational values of the park. The Moorecroft Regional Park Management Plan details specific actions over the next ten years that accomplish the requirements of the covenant. Over time visitors will find a modified, yet predominantly natural landscape with a range of safe, accessible and sustainable infrastructure and amenities that provide a quality visitor experience within a healthy natural environment.
Since 2013, high priority management plan actions have been implemented to help prevent further deterioration of ecological values and restore native habitat. Actions include fencing of sensitive areas, trail improvements, trail rerouting, and removal of unsafe buildings.
Other visitor amenities noted in the Management Plan, such as picnic shelters, toilets, an information kiosk, interpretation signs and parking, were revisited and prioritized in 2017.
