Purpose of a Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan

The City of El Cerrito is planning to develop a Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan that will serve as a long-range planning and asset management document and provide a framework for understanding the recreational and open space assets the City owns, services it provides, risks it assumes, and financial investments it requires to maintain, repair, rehabilitate and improve these assets.

The Master Plan Will:
  • engage the public to determine community priorities for parks and recreation;
  • include long-range planning strategies to maintain, rehabilitate and improve the City’s network of parks, facilities, recreational, and open space assets, including current unfunded park and recreational opportunities;
  • evaluate the effective use of the City’s financial and physical resources to proactively implement the Master Plan.
