Parks and Recreation Master Plan

The City will be creating a new Parks and Recreation Master Plan (Master Plan) which will guide park development and recreation services for the next 15 years, and we would like your ideas about what you would like to see offered.

Purpose and Goal

The purpose of the Master Plan is to learn about Fremont’s growing population and what they would like to see offered by Parks and Recreation Services. The goal of the Master Plan is to provide clear guidance on how to meet the demands for future recreational, programming, environmental, and maintenance needs, as well as to establish priorities for facility improvements, future park development, and land acquisitions.
