Parks and Recreation Master Plan

Huntington Beach, CA

Nicknamed “Surf City” for its beautiful wide beaches and consistently breaking surf, The City of Huntington Beach has a large and well-established park system with over seventy five parks and numerous community recreation buildings.  The City contracted RJM Design Group to update its existing Parks and Recreation Master Plan.  The first phase of the project included a background review of the demographics and community trends and their impact on the park system.  The second phase involved a detailed inventory of the facilities and programs currently provided in the City, as well as a gap analysis of the existing facilities to determine locations where recreational opportunities are needed.  The third phase included a thorough public involvement process including executive interviews, sports organization questionnaire, telephone survey, and public workshops.  The fourth phase looked at the demand and needs for facilities based on the inventory of existing facilities and the data derived from the prior phases.  Recommendations will include an opportunities feasibility analysis, acquisition plan, cost estimates, capital improvement plan, and sustainable practices/maintenance and operations management plan.
