Updating Midland's Parks Master Plan

On March 8, 2010, Midland City Council approved the City's Parks and Recreation Master Plan, a five-year guide to park improvements and new initiatives for Midland's parks system. 

Many thanks to the countless citizens who provided their input on proposed changes to the plan through a quick and easy online survey that was available on this site during 2009, an open house on April 23, 2009, and many Parks and Recreation Commission and City Council public hearings on the topic.
