Attend an ice cream social and community conversation to provide input on how you use Gene Kelly Playfield and what you want to see in a new park. The goal is to help ensure residents are served with the facilities and programs you desire and need.

The City of Bloomington initiated the process of developing a new Park System Master Plan(External link) in November 2019. With extensive and invaluable assistance from City staff, Council, Commissions and most importantly the community, the plan is now complete. At its August 30, 2021 meeting, the Bloomington City Council formally adopted the Park System Master Plan.
Adoption of the master plan was just the first step. Now the work of developing service area and individual park plans begins. The Park System Master Plan, as adopted, provides a clear action plan and guidance for improvements to Bloomington's parks, trails, facilities, recreational programs and green spaces.
