City of Columbia Parks and Recreation Department invites the community to provide input for Parks & Recreation Master Plan

May 15, 2024

The City of Columbia Parks & Recreation Department is seeking members of the community to assist in evaluating park and recreation programs within the City. The results will be used to develop a Parks & Recreation Master Plan for its park facilities, recreation programs, greenways and services. A series of community meetings will be held April and May in recreation facilities located in City Council Districts 1, 2, 3 and 4.

The participants will be asked to weigh in on the extent to which Columbia’s park facilities, recreation programs, and services meet the needs of the community. Participants will also be asked to weigh in on the community’s perception of needs for future facilities, amenities, services, and programs.

The City has engaged the services of Weston & Sampson, a multi-disciplinary planning and design firm to help develop the Master Plan.  Please visit  or scan the QR Code to sign up for a meeting.


Meetings for District 1 and 4 were held in April.

The meeting for District 2 was held earlier this month.
