Parks & Recreation


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.

Citizen input is crucial and will help identify ways to best serve the recreational needs of the community over the coming 10 years. A community survey is being mailed to city residents and will be available online for others in the wider Vale community.

Check back soon for more information about public meetings and other outreach.

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