Parks and Recreation Master Plan

PARKS-MPThe City of Victoria is updating the community’s Parks and Recreation Master Plan.  This planning initiative offers you – the residents and property owners of Victoria – the opportunity to identify the types of park spaces, recreation facilities, and recreational programs that will make our community an even better place to live.

The Victoria Parks and Recreation Master Plan: 

  • Is a blueprint for the maintenance and upkeep of all city parks and recreation facilities
  • Identifies capital park improvement projects
  • Guides the development of new parks and trails
  • Assists City staff in developing new programs and events.  Whether you visit Victoria parks for relaxation, socializing, or play, the new parks and recreation plan will be our roadmap to provide “A Space for All of Us!”
