Parks and Recreation System Improvement Plan

The Parks and Recreation System Improvement Plan assesses the current parks and recreation system in the City of Mobile, considering facilities, programs, operations and funding; and outlines recommendations for improvements to the system over the next 10 years.

The Parks and Recreation System Improvement Plan

The Parks and Recreation System Improvement Plan stems from recommendations from Map for Mobile to more closely examine parks and recreation needs across the City. This plan achieves that goal by analyzing current business practices, assessing existing infrastructure and programming, engaging the public to understand their needs, and identifying trends and best practices from peer cities with similar parks systems.

The planning process included extensive involvement of City staff, review of other planning documents, understanding of demographic trends in the City, and a variety of public engagement forums, as well as analysis of the City’s current parks and recreation facilities, programs, and operations.
