City Overhauls Parks & Recreation Master Plan

Over a decade ago, in 2006, the first Parks and Recreation Master Plan in De Soto was developed to help guide staff in planning and providing quality parks and recreation services. In the fall of 2018, acting on the goals and objectives contained in the City's Strategic Plan, the Parks and Recreation Master Plan was updated to reflect the changing needs and desires of the area, in addition to accounting for the changing resources, programs, and facilities of De Soto. This plan will serve as an evolving resource to help guide the Parks and Recreation Department in reaching the desired vision of the community.

The purpose of the Master Plan Update is to determine the direction for parks and recreation facility and programming improvements. This plan will serve as a guide to help the City make decisions regarding current and future parks, recreation, and trails provision. This process included the engagement of the community while identifying opportunities for improvement in an easy to read format that is implementable.

A summary of the plan's recommendations is available here: /DocumentCenter/View/923/DeSoto-KS-Final-Presentation
