Community input needed for Kiwanis Park Management Plan

Post Date:07/02/2019 10:32 AM

The City of Tempe is working on a Kiwanis Park Management Plan that will provide guidelines for future programming, amenities, facilities and operational needs of the park and recreation center. The community is invited to take an online survey to provide feedback on the plan. This input will help guide the management plan to ensure it reflects the needs and desires of the community.

The survey is available at through July 31 and is open to all Valley residents.

After the public input process is complete, a draft plan will be created, followed by a public meeting in September to gather feedback. The draft master plan will be taken to Tempe City Council this winter for final adoption.

The management planning process includes extensive research and analysis into how Kiwanis Park and the recreation center are used today. It will also include an inventory of existing assets and an assessment of current programming.  A consultant was hired to conduct the research and develop the management plan. 

The Kiwanis Park Management Plan is underway concurrently with the Parks and Recreation Master Plan, which will identify a long-term vision for all of Tempe’s parks and recreation programs. The Kiwanis Park Management plan will complement the larger, citywide parks vision.
