Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

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.

WHERE ARE WE IN THE PROCESS?
Since the start of the project in the fall of 2019, staff have been working with a consultant team, stakeholders, and the community to identify parks and recreation needs, assess how Fort Collins compares to other peer and benchmark communities, and identify key issues and priorities the plan should address.

On August 25, staff will share with City Council updates regarding the project and look for feedback on next steps. Along with this update to Council, community members are invited to begin reviewing preliminary plan documents and provide feedback through this Our City page.

June timeline


BACKGROUND

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.

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
