City Updates 5 year Comprehensive Outdoor Park & Rec Plan

This document is an update to the City's Comprehensive Outdoor Park & Rec Plan. Initially developed in 1971, this document has been updated and modified several times, and has seen significant growth and development of the City’s recreational resources

The City of Stevens Point residents and businesses widely hold the City’s Park and Recreation system in high regard. These facilities contribute significantly to a community’s quality of life, and the ability for the City to attract and retain people, businesses and investments.

The Stevens Point Board of Park Commissioners conducted significant public involvement 
through the creation of this document to ensure they have captured and considered the items that are most desired by park users. This document is intended to be a five-year guide for policy and financing decision making for the City, and as such identifies capital improvements from 2018-2022.

While the planning horizon is short-term in nature, the principal purpose is to identify specific park and recreation improvement projects. Some of these may be large in scale, and will require ongoing efforts, as well as necessitate a phased approach to make them manageable. Cost estimates for the projects and timing for the projects over the five-year period will need to be evaluated by staff, the Parks Commission and Common Council.
