Astoria Parks and Recreation Comprehensive Master Plan 2016.pdf
The City of Astoria Parks and Recreation Department is conducting a Comprehensive Parks and Recreation Master Plan. This plan will establish a short and long-term vision and priorities for the Parks Department’s parks, facilities, and program offerings. The planning process will involve an extensive evaluation of existing recreation opportunities in and around the City of Astoria, and will assess the need for improvements, changes, and future development. A critical aspect of successful planning is to engage the community in the process, in a way that is equitable and inclusive of the needs and interests of all Parks and Recreation user groups
