Rocky Point and Old Orchard Parks Master Plans

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We’re drafting a comprehensive update to the existing Rocky Point Park Master Plan (adopted in 2000) and developing a master plan to guide upgrades for Old Orchard Park. Both plans will provide a framework for decision-making over the next 10 years.

Help shape the future of Rocky Point and Old Orchard parks! Your input will help us ensure these unique outdoor spaces can continue to support our diverse community into the future.

Rocky Point and Old Orchard parks are well enjoyed by the local community and visitors from throughout the region. As the region’s population grows, however, these parks face intensifying usage pressures which can lead to heightened stress on aging infrastructure and the natural environment. An updated assessment of park spaces and plans for strategic renewal will help us improve community well-being, social equity, and the resiliency of the parks’ natural habitats.

We want to hear from you! How do you use these parks today? What do you want them to be like in the future? Take our Rocky Point Park survey and/or our Old Orchard Park surveys today.

What is a park master plan?

A park master plan:

  • is a strategic, living document
  • is a framework for future planning and decision-making around park facilities, trails, and open spaces
  • articulates a vision for the park and highlights priorities and long-term aspirations
  • is organized around a series of layered maps that together form a cohesive plan
  • sets out a clear implementation plan going forward

How can you get involved?

Your input will help us create a vision and develop a plan for each park. Click on the "Surveys" tab to get started. Our Rocky Point Park and Old Orchard Park surveys will remain open through August 16, 2022.
