How can Vale’s parks and open spaces meet your family’s recreation needs?

We want to hear from you! 

The City has started to prepare a citywide Parks and Recreation Master Plan to establish a road map for providing high-quality, community-driven parks, trails and recreation offerings for Vale. The new Parks and Recreation Plan will allow the City to respond to new opportunities as they arise and be strategic about planned investments to the park system.

The review and adoption of the new, citywide Parks and Recreation Plan is anticipated for late 2022.
