Tempe is updating its Parks and Recreation Master Plan to create city standards for park amenities, sports fields, equipment and recreation programming. The plan will be used as a blueprint for future park projects and program offerings.
A robust public involvement process, including surveys, open houses and public meetings, will take place to ensure the plan is a reflection of the community.

WHAT IS A MASTER PLAN?
A master plan is a guideline for future park improvements. The master planning effort includes extensive research and analysis into how Tempe's parks and recreation program are used today, an inventory of existing assets and their condition, and an assessment of current programming to establish a vision and implementation strategies.
