Parks Master Plan

The purpose of the Parks Master Plan is to develop a community-supported comprehensive plan that provides guidance for future development and redevelopment of the Township’s parks, recreation programming, open space, trails, and facilities.

The Parks Master Plan will guide policy development, prioritize demands and opportunities, and generate a strategic action plan to be updated every five years. Moreover, this plan will create a clear set of goals, policies, and objectives thus providing direction to Township staff and the Board of Trustees for development, re-development, expansion and enhancement of the Township's parks system, open spaces, trails, recreation facilities, and recreation programs and services for a short-term (2020), mid-term (2025) and long-term (2035) range.
