142. The Community may, by by-law, determine which parks, recreational centres and other recreational facilities not established by the Community are of a regional nature. In such a case, the Community is entrusted with the maintenance and operation of such parks, centres and facilities. For the purposes of this paragraph, the recreational centres and other recreational facilities referred to are those established by a municipality whose territory is comprised in that of the Community.
The Community may also, by by-law, establish parks, recreational centres and other recreational facilities that are of a regional nature.
For the purposes of this subdivision, a natural area or a corridor for recreational and sports activities is considered to be a park. However, a corridor to be used exclusively for the purposes referred to in section 144 is governed by that section and by section 144.1 rather than by the other provisions of this subdivision.
