We want to hear from you! 

The City has started to create its first citywide Parks Master Plan. The new Plan will establish a path forward for providing high quality, community-driven parks, trails, natural areas and recreation services throughout Gladstone.

The Parks Master Plan will shape the delivery of City-provided parks and recreation services in a manner that is consistent with other city planning goals and is intended to be strategic in focus to help the City respond to three important questions:

  • What are our strengths?
  • Where should we focus our efforts?
  • Who should we serve?

Public input is crucial to make sure program goals and priorities are consistent with community needs and desires.

Community Survey Online — Share your opinions!

Please take a moment to complete a short survey about recreational needs in the community. The survey consists of 16 questions focused on satisfaction, preferred activities and needed improvements. It takes on average about five minutes to complete, and all responses will be kept confidential. Take the survey now.

There will be several opportunities for the community to participate, including a mail and online survey, public meetings and stakeholder discussions. This process will provide an opportunity to identify ways to better serve the recreational needs of the Gladstone community over the coming 5 to 10 years.

Check back soon for more information about public meetings and other outreach.

Final review and adoption of the Plan tentatively is scheduled for Summer 2017.

This web page will provide updates on the planning process, public meeting schedule, surveys, etc. For more information, call (503) 656-7957.
