Parks & Recreation

Parks Planning Library

The 2010 Master Plan drives Duluth Parks Planning in determining the future use of our extensive parks and trail system. Goals of this plan include:

  • improve the quality of existing parks (especially neighborhood parks)
  • focus on connecting the community through trails and bikeways
  • have fewer, but higher quality recreation buildings
  • enhance stewardship of natural resources
  • expand partnerships with schools for community recreation and gathering
  • increase use and recognition of volunteers and volunteer groups
  • create stable and sustainable funding sources to improve the park system
