Parks and Recreation Master Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We are preparing a five-year update to the Parks & Recreation Master Plan. Guided by consultation, research and analysis, the updated plan will identify priorities for recreation facilities, parkland and park amenities, and related services.

The previous Master Plan was prepared in 2016 and has reached the end of its timeframe. The Town has made significant progress in implementing this plan, such as adding program spaces and a gymnasium to the SARC (in progress), creating new sports fields and courts, establishing new trail connections, completing a User Fee Review and Access Policy, expanding program options, and much more.

We are seeking public input to help the Town create a roadmap for the next five years! The updated plan will consider ideas and suggestions from Aurora residents and stakeholders, our evolving demographics, growth patterns, and changing activity preferences. Monteith Brown Planning Consultants have been retained to assist the Town with this project.
