This is the year to
imagine a bigger, better park system filled with fun for every Grand Rapidian!
Help the City complete our Strategic Master Plan for Parks and Recreation by sharing your voice.
Over 75 parks and open spaces, year-round recreation
programs, outdoor movies, farmers markets, and events… the Grand Rapids parks
and recreation system does a lot! But, we also want to make it better: the City
of Grand Rapids Parks & Recreation has embarked on a citywide strategic
master plan and we need your feedback. We’re searching for ways to bring
walkable parks to every neighborhood, exploring new recreation programs,
dreaming up ideas to improve existing amenities, and building in ways to make
the system financially and environmentally sustainable.
The Master Plan will create a vision for the long-term development, programming, and sustainability of Grand Rapids' parks, public open spaces, and recreation facilities. The plan will consider community needs, recreation opportunities for all ages and abilities, economic development, environmental conditions, priority projects and funding. Community engagement is at the heart of this effort.
