At the December 7, 2015 City Council meeting, the Park Sales Tax implementation plan was approved by the City Council.  This plan creates the schedule of approved park improvements and new park development over the next six years.  The projects are selected and placed within a given year based on a number of different reasons including construction schedules, necessary safety improvements, planning schedules, grant opportunities and the ability to reduce utility expenses or maintenance costs.  The Parks and Recreation Department will hold interested parties meetings and ask for Council approval for each project during that project's funding year, but we would also like to use this forum to gain overall input about each proposed project.  For each project, you will see a short description of the general improvements proposed by the park planning staff, and we would like additional comments from the public about each park and trail project.  This forum allows the public to provide input for each project ranging from a new idea for that park or trail or point out an area we should focus on as we renovate or construct the park.

In the forum, you will see many different ideas that represent each of the park and trail projects in the PST implementation plan from 2016 to 2021.  Please feel free to comment within each idea about what you would like to see!  You can also add a general idea to the forum if you have an idea for a trail or park that isn't listed as a current idea!

If you would like to have more information about each park, facility or trail, please visit:

Improvements to Gans Creek Recreation Area (GCRA) will focus on the construction of a concession and restroom facility to service the seven multi-purpose athletic fields currently under construction as part of the 2010 Park Sales Tax. The regional park will serve as one of two main locations for all soccer, football and lacrosse leagues and tournaments as well as special events and unique sports tournaments such as archery and ultimate frisbee. The facility is needed to provide the necessary amenities for all of these events. Park staff will manage the concession operations within the facility. Total funding for the project is $600,000 with construction scheduled to begin in 2016.
