For Immediate Release: October 3, 2012

Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities to Gather Public Input on Management Plans for the City’s Large Multi-use Parks

In October 2012, the Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities will kick-off a nine-month public outreach process to develop Management Framework Plans for the City’s large multi-use Parks. The parks included is this process include Four Mile Run Park, Simpson Stadium Park, Chinquapin Park, Hensley Park, Holmes Run Park, and Ben Brenman/Armistead L. Boothe Parks. The goal of this effort is to study and understand the existing conditions and plan for future needs in each of the parks.

Park Planning staff want to know how you use the parks, what you like about the parks, and what you hope to see in the parks in the future. Your input will help guide the plans and ultimately inform decisions on how the parks evolve over time.

Share your thoughts in the following ways:

  1. Send us feedback! Visit the Citywide Park Planning page and provide feedback on how you “see” the park.

    - OR -
  2. Beginning September 28, 2012, go to one of the parks and pick up a map at the park entrance. Marking up the map, show us how you use the Park and what improvements you hope to see. You can also print a map from the website.
