Parks & Recreation is preparing to host two open houses to engage with residents on its forthcoming master plan, which will include conceptual renderings of Ethel Lee Tracy Park, Martin Luther King Jr. Park and Riverside Park.

Residents next week will be able to offer feedback and learn about progress on the forthcoming Parks & Recreation master plan during two in-person open houses and one additional pop-up event.

Parks & Recreation Director Jason Alfaro“We want residents to stay informed and engaged as we start to move into the next stage of development with our survey results,” said Parks & Recreation Director Jason Alfaro.

The come-and-go open houses will be 5:30-7:30 p.m. March 30 at Vickers Elementary School, 708 Glascow St., and 5:30-7:30 p.m. March 31 at the Victoria Community Center, 2905 E. North St. Residents will be able to view poster displays related to the master plan and have one-on-one discussions with Parks & Recreation staff and Halff Associates representatives.

Residents will have an additional opportunity to view the open house displays and talk to Parks & Recreation staff 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. March 31 at City Hall, 105 W. Juan Linn St.

The displays will include information gathered from residents’ responses to Parks & Recreation’s master plan surveys and from stakeholder meetings. Upgraded restrooms and playgrounds are among the highest priorities for the hundreds of residents who’ve responded to the surveys so far. 

Attendees at all of the sessions will be required to wear facial coverings in accordance with the host locations’ policies. Attendees are also encouraged to practice social distancing. Hand sanitizer will be available.

The overall survey for the Parks & Recreation master plan, as well as the surveys for the conceptual renderings of Riverside Park, Ethel Lee Tracy Park and Martin Luther King Jr. Park, will remain open until April 5. To respond to the surveys, visit
