December 2020 Update

Read the results of the Parks Community Recreation Survey (PDF)

The Parks Community Recreation Survey was launched after several residents expressed an interest in enhancing community parks and recreation assets in Parks. As a follow-up to the survey, the Parks and Recreation Department hosted two virtual community meetings in Dec. 2020 to review the survey results, compare these with findings and recommendations from the 2019 County Parks and Recreation Master Plan, answer questions and share our recommended course of action.

Shape Your Parks, Your Future

Coconino County Parks and Recreation is updating its Master Plan and we want to hear from YOU!

What is a master plan?

This master plan will shape the future of Coconino County’s parks, recreation, trails, and open spaces by identifying each community’s needs, goals and priorities.

Why is it important?

Parks, recreation, and open spaces objectives change over time. By identifying existing conditions, needs, and future resources, this master plan will craft a shared vision in Coconino County.

Your voice matters!

2009 Organizational Master Plan

Coconino County Parks and Recreation's 2009 Organizational Master Plan established goals, policies, and strategies to re-position the department to provide a wider range of outdoor programs and services to a wider range of citizens. Goals addressed through 2019 relate to: facility management, repair, and replacement; financial and budgetary management; strategic growth; and new programs and facilities. 

The public's input shaped the Master Plan in three fundamental directions. In the public's view, the County should:

  • Maintain and improve existing facilities, including capital repair and replacement, and upgrades to expand capacity or generate additional revenues for parks,
  • Focus on large parks devoted to natural areas, open spaces, corridor trails, passive recreation, nature education/adventure camps, and special events; and
  • Develop additional county parks in local communities that agree to participate in fund raising, operation, and facility maintenance.
