Strategic Plan


Scottsdale Parks and Recreation is proud to be a nationally accredited agency that offers programs, special events, open park space, aquatic centers, off leash areas, playgrounds, and other recreational amenities/facilities for the community to enjoy.

The department is working on a five-year strategic plan and is in the stage of gathering community, stakeholder and staff input as part of the planning process. The department is working with strategic planning consultant Mr. Matt Lehrman of Social Prosperity Partners to guide the process.
