San Bernardino is developing its first parks master plan in fifteen years to identify current and future facility needs, as well as youth, senior and recreation programs for the City’s parks, community centers, and senior centers.
“Our entire team is committed to ensuring the most inclusive planning process for a parks master plan”, said Parks and Recreation Director Lydie Gutfeld. “Everyone in San Bernardino who wishes to participate will have a chance to share their vision for the future.”
Ongoing project updates, community meeting schedules, and additional feedback opportunities are available at the newly launched, mobile friendly, ADA accessible and multi-lingual website: www.MySBParks.com
The City of San Bernardino Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Department currently oversees 33 parks and nine community/senior centers spanning 500 acres. The Department provides youth, teen, adult, and senior activities, and lifestyle programs, operates recreational sports leagues, and organizes signature community events such as Festival, Artsfest, Movies and Concerts in the Park, and Miracle on Court Street.
“Our parks are wonderful gathering places and activity centers for our residents. And they are used a lot,” continued Gutfeld. “Our master plan will be a success if the community helps us create a park system that meets the needs of San Bernardino, is clean and safe, is inclusive, and creates memorable experiences.”
