Park Planning

Each year the City of Greeley looks at its wide-range of park acreage to determine the best ways to improve outdoor recreational opportunities throughout the community. Playgrounds, shelters, and amenities are evaluated for their age and level of use, and each year, several parks throughout the system undergo renovations or improvements.

This City of Greeley has a full time park planner who develops long and short-term strategic plans to complement the Parks Master Plan as well as the Trails Master Plan. For more information about the future of Greeley’s parks, check out each of the following links, all of which were developed with public input.
