ReCreate: Parks and Recreation Master Plan

Rethink. Renew. Reimagine.

The City of Fort Collins is updating its plan for parks and recreation in the city for the first time in over ten years! Join the process to share your thoughts, values and vision for how Parks and Recreation could look in the future.

The Parks and Recreation Policy Plan was last updated in 2008. The needs of our community are continually evolving, and so has the needs and expectations of the Parks system and the City’s recreation facilities.

This Master Plan process presents a great opportunity to align the vision, goals, and standards of our Parks and Recreation Facilities with evolving community needs and the many bold ideas presented in City Plan.

Specific attention will be given to the following issues:

  • Keeping up with a growing and changing community
  • Expanding access and connectivity
  • Maintaining existing quality of experiences
  • Establishing the value of parks and recreation

Key outcomes for the planning process include:

  1. Vision, goals and metrics
  2. Needed parks and recreation facilities
  3. Build out strategy
  4. Design standards and guidelines
  5. Strategy for special interest group requests
  6. Community health alignment
  7. Park design process
  8. Park refresh strategy
  9. Lifecycle strategies
  10. Paved trails
