Kzoo Parks Master Planning Process

What would you like to see in your favorite park? Do you have ideas on how we can make Kalamazoo’s parks better? We’re updating the parks master plan to guide improvements for the next several years, and we want to hear from you!

The parks master plan will identify priorities for the City’s 52 park and recreation sites which are home to athletic fields, splash pads, picnic sites, playgrounds, a pool, and more. We're also looking at our programs, amenities, and how our team operates. We want to make sure that Kzoo Parks is offering world-class parks and programs and that everyone is included!

Our last master plan(PDF, 66MB) was completed in 2018, but a lot has changed in Kalamazoo since then. The new plan will explore the changing ways people are spending their leisure time and new types of recreation so that there's something for everyone. Input from our community is so important, so please join us at an event or complete a survey to let us know what you'd like to see!
