Next Steps

Community Input Important

This is the second time the Parks Department has asked for community input on the plan. Last June, the public was invited to complete an online survey on ways to improve city parks and facilities. The survey feedback was considered in the development of the master plan.

The Parks Department is committed to provide quality parks and facilities, open spaces, natural areas, educational opportunities and services to enhance the well-being of the citizens of Auburn and surrounding areas.
