What is the Parks Master Plan?
The Parks Master Plan that guides our investment in parks, facilities, trails, and open space over the next ten years!
They say you can tell the health of a community by the condition of its parks. For decades, our parks have needed a significant investment to keep them safe, inclusive, enjoyable, and comfortable for our children, families and residents. Now is the time to provide a park system that will support and promote healthy lifestyles, improve inequities in greenspace, and support community livability, park safety, trail connectivity, and our quality of life.

How did we get here?
The Master Plan process started in 2020. Despite the constraints of working during the pandemic and coordinating with Open Space Element of the General Plan, the process was extremely thorough. We received input from the public through multiple methods, including virtual and in-person meetings, online surveys, and the creation of a diverse Parks Advisory Group that represented various City boards and commissions, a number of community-based organizations, demographic groups, age groups, activities and geographic areas within the city.
