Master Plan Update - Let us Know What You Want!

May contain: text

The Carmichael Recreation and Parks Master Plan Update is off to a good start!

This plan is a strategic document providing a framework for future park and facility improvements. It’s our time to dream big and shape the future of how we connect, care, and create in our parks and programs. Now more than, we are valuing our community and outdoor spaces.
Our plan is only as good as the community behind the ideas. We want to hear from YOU. Your input will help us develop a robust plan for the future of OUR Recreation and Parks system.


Virtual Focus Groups - 

The Carmichael Recreation and Park District is currently updating its park and recreation master plan to guide its efforts for the next 10 years.  This is a timely effort, as we all have an increased appreciation for the benefits of the Carmichael park and recreation system during our shelter in place restrictions.  As we reopen, we have the opportunity to reflect on what we need from our park system and open spaces. The plan needs to represent the Carmichael community’s values and priorities.  Because of the restrictions on gatherings, much of the collection of community input has been done via online surveys.  As we analyze the input already received from the community, it’s clear that several topics need further discussion and input.  We are specifically looking for those who are interested in participating in a virtual focus group meeting hosted by the District and facilitated by our master plan consultants in the following areas:

  1. Teens and Younger Residents
  2. Sports Groups
  3. Younger Families and Newer Residents
  4. Aquatic Amenity Space

If you consider yourself to be in one of these categories, we want to hear from you!  Please complete this quick interest form:  Focus Group Interest Form

Our hope is to find a time in the coming weeks that works for most people to attend a virtual focus group meeting.  Your efforts will help us in updating the Recreation and Parks Master Plan and guide the development and management of the park system over the next 10 years.


Visit our project website for information, ways to participate, and the progress of our plan.

We look forward to building this plan with you.
