Park system master plan underway
A park system master plan is a road map that lays out a long-term vision and establishes goals and guiding principles that serve as a guide for future park system investments. City staff consider information gathered from the community, local and national park and recreation trends, community demographics, facility needs, current and future programming needs, maintenance and long-term sustainability while drafting the new plan.
What makes up the Bloomington park system?
Bloomington has 97 parks, nearly 4,000 acres of parkland and many miles of pedestrian and biking trails. The park system also includes facilities such as Bloomington Center for the Arts, Bloomington Ice Garden, Dwan Golf Club, Hyland Greens Golf and Learning Center, and Creekside Community Center.
