About the Parks and Recreation Master Plan Update

The Parks and Recreation Master Plan update is a recommendation of Moving Forward –The Comprehensive Plan for Chesterfield County. The Chesterfield Parks and Recreation Department, together with other county departments and our Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission, co-sponsored groups, foundations and other partners, have developed this updated plan. The last Plan was adopted in 2002. The Parks and Recreation Master Plan will set the framework to create a high-quality park system that meets the needs of residents and visitors in all stages of life through an equitable provision of active and passive recreation opportunities. Public parks serve a variety of cultural, recreational, educational, historical and natural functions, and are an important component of a high-quality of life. In addition, the county park system promotes tourism through sports tournaments and other events, providing revenue for government services, local businesses and supporting economic development. The Plan will be updated every five years on the same schedule as the Comprehensive Plan for Chesterfield County.
