Glendale Parks & Recreation Master Plan Update


The city of Glendale Public Facilities, Recreation & Special Events Department is in the process of updating its Parks & Recreation Master Plan.

Glendale residents and stakeholders are invited to participate by providing feedback, thoughts and ideas about the future of parks and recreation programs and amenities throughout the process.

The updating process will also include incorporating and updating the Thunderbird Conservation Park Master Plan and the Open Space and Trails Master Plan, and address bike and pedestrian goals in the city’s
Envision 2040 General Plan. The Parks and Recreation Master Plan was last updated in 2011.


Glendale, Arizona has contracted with GreenPlay LLC, a parks, recreation and open space consulting firm, who will conduct research and collect information through stakeholder interviews and focus groups, as well as host a public open house to garner a thorough examination of the community’s needs. After the information-gathering stage, GreenPlay LLC will conduct a statistical survey, which a select number of Glendale residents will receive through the mail.

We are currently seeking feedback from residents, customers and stakeholders via an online survey. Please take 15 minutes or so to answer a few questions to help shape the future of parks and recreation amenities, programs and services in Glendale.

This survey will conclude on Feb. 28.
