Park System Master Plan update

The process for a new Park System Master Plan started in fall 2019. The Park System Master Plan is a road map for planning and completing park improvements. It will help the City decide what parks to focus on first in the future, and ensure changes and investments to parks fit into the bigger picture of serving the needs of the community today and long term. 

The Park System Master Plan will consider local and national park and recreation trends, community demographics, facility needs, current and future programming needs, maintenance, long-term sustainability, and most importantly, information gathered from the community. It will ultimately be the foundation for future decision-making, program planning, budgeting and park system investments.

Based on your comments provided throughout the year, we are preparing a draft vision statement, goals and guiding principles for the Park System Master Plan. To stay informed and continue to provide input on the draft plan call 952-563-8877 go to blm.mn/parks2020.
