The City of Greensboro is home to an award-winning park and recreation system, featuring an extensive network of greenways and trails, a robust collection of neighborhood parks and several regionally significant parks. Ensuring the longevity of this system is the focus of the 2018 Parks and Recreation Master Plan. Since the previous plan in 1998 and the 2005 update, Greensboro has been experiencing city-wide growth, demographic changes, significant deferred maintenance and funding shifts, making now an important moment to plan for the future. Agency is leading a diverse team of local and national experts to envision the next era of Greensboro’s world-class park and recreation system.
The project team has begun a thorough analysis of the City’s parks and recreation system, and in parallel, has initiated a series of community conversations to understand the priorities of Greensboro’s culturally diverse and evolving population. Early findings point to continued support for connectivity and neighborhood-scale amenities, as well as investment in state-of-the-art facilities. The team is excited to help the City chart a progressive path forward amidst growth and development, unique neighborhood needs, environmental conditions, and a competitive funding/financing context.
