Parks & Recreation

Plan Tucson supports accessible and equitable recreational opportunities for all ages and abilities through policies that focus on the repair, maintenance, and improvement of facilities to high standards; development of a multipurpose path system; and collaborative efforts such as shared use facilities and care of neighborhood parks. These policies also emphasize the broader community benefits of improved public safety, public health, social networks, and mobility that result from having a range of safe community events, recreational programs and facilities.
