Click here to take our Duluth Parks & Recreation Master Plan Survey - Open to All
The Parks and Recreation Department is embarking on the creation of "Essential Spaces: Duluth Parks, Recreation, Open Space & Trails Plan", a city-wide parks system Master Plan. The City last conducted a master planning of its parks system in 2010. Much has changed since this time, including many new and enhanced parks, trails, and programming offerings. Yet, opportunities to improve still remain. Essential Spaces will serve as a long-range planning document to guide the Department in the development and prioritization of programs, facilities, parks, and natural lands that serve the Duluth community now and into the future. This master planning effort will take a fresh look at the parks system and, with multiple opportunities for community outreach and engagement, will reflect the community’s values and guiding principles.
