Parks & Recreation Facilities Master Plan

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 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.
