Ward 5 News
Tucson residents know their parks and recreation facilities provide places to get active, explore nature or connect with community members. But what they may not know is that their parks and recreation also contribute to improved health outcomes, higher property values and environmental sustainability.
The Tucson Parks and Recreation Department wants to know how it can improve recreation and leisure opportunities for all of its users.
This July the department kicks off a process of information gathering that will result in a vibrant, new five-year master plan that anticipates future needs and outlines the actions necessary to deliver high quality recreation facilities, programs and services to the Tucson area. Public and stakeholder input is essential and critical to the success of the master plan.
