Why we create master plans
A park master plan is a blueprint that guides park design according to the space and community needs. We look at everything that makes a park a place to play, including how it’s graded, what surfaces to use, pathways, tables and benches, playground equipment, shelters and more! Some things you can see on the surface and some things are invisible. Master plans make sure our parks are functional, aesthetically pleasing and create a sense of community space.
