  • Green Space, Recreation and Parks Element & Master Plan

    The Green Space, Recreation and Parks Element and Master Plan are the result of a three year effort to determine the community’s goals and objectives for open space, parks, and recreation facilities and programs. The Element and Master Plan work together to identify existing facilities and programs, assess how they are used, identify where additional park facilities or recreation programs are needed, and recommend how to best meet these needs.
     
    The key recommendations of the documents are to: 

    • Increase connectivity between local trails and regional trails
    • Acquire additional parks and open spaces, particularly in the identified “gap areas”
    • Increase cooperation and joint use of school facilities with the Pasadena Unified School District
    • Address deficits in sports fields and recreational facilities through improving existing facilities, acquiring additional facilities, and pursuing joint use of school facilities

    Together with the Open Space and Conservation Element, the Green Space, Recreation and Parks Element & Master Plan serve as a framework of goals and policies to assure efficient stewardship of the City’s green spaces, recreation facilities, and natural resources.
