The City of San Diego, like most cities across America, is entering an era of innovation for parks and recreation planning and management. Driven by changes in community demographics and lifestyles, the nature of play and leisure is changing. As communities grow and develop, the City must also reexamine the way that it defines and meets desired service levels.
The Parks Master Plan offers an exciting opportunity to build on the current parks and recreation system. The Parks Master Plan will explore needed strategies for delivering a diverse and meaningful array of parks, recreation facilities, and programs, offering quality facilities citywide, especially in older, developed communities, and identifying sustainable funding sources for new facilities, maintenance, and staffing.
