Summary: Having a plan for your parks, or park system, is essential to effectively plan for the current and future success of your agency. However, this can seem like a costly and overburdening task. This session will illustrate how a parks master plan for a jurisdiction can be a quick and cost-effective exercise with a BIG return to how the park and park system is managed, maintained and planned for in the future.
