Help shape the future of Scottsdale Parks and Recreation

The Scottsdale Parks and Recreation Department recently kicked off its citywide master planning process. The long-range master plan will serve as a blueprint for recreation planning, projects, priorities and structure for the next decade. Public feedback is important to ensure future parks and recreation priorities and goals are resident-driven and meet evolving community needs. Scottsdale will host multiple workshops and focus groups to gather feedback over the next several months. Here is how you can get involved:

  • Community workshop #1: 6 – 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 4, at Mountain View Park and Community Center, 8625 E. Mountain View Road. Learn more about the master plan process and share your ideas for the future.
