We're developing a Citywide Parks and Recreation Master Plan

We have a lot to celebrate in San Rafael with great places to play, a beautiful setting with natural open space resources, and classes that enrich our community. However, we realize that there is opportunity to improve.

By creating a master plan, we will have a guide to further develop our parks and recreational programs, create and maintain funding and set priorities for the future. The City of San Rafael is invested in providing a thriving  system for all ages, abilities, and activities.

As we look at existing conditions of the San Rafael park and recreation network, we'll identify what's missing and ways in which we can make improvements. This includes how we can maintain the parks, update facilities, increase ways for people to access and connect to parks, and how we can strengthen programs, classes, and activities within the City.


Thank you for participating in our community meetings and the Parks & Recreation Questionnaire!

During our first series of community meetings that were held in March, April and May, we introduced the planning process, shared information about the community questionnaire, and worked with community participants to get their feedback and input. We also received more than 1,100 responses to our Parks & Recreation Questionnaire! Thank you very much to all of those who provided feedback on what recreation amenities and programs are important to our community.

Please check back for a summary of the input we received from the community.

Join us for the next Community Meeting: Hear about the results of the facility assessment and community engagement, and provide feedback on the initial recommendations.
