Visit the dedicated Parks & Recreation Master Plan website to see what's happening and to give your input about the future of parks and recreation in Fremont.

Have you enjoyed parks, community centers or recreation classes in Fremont? The parks, facilities, and classes were all, at one time, just ideas that then turned into a plan.

The City is creating a new Parks and Recreation Master Plan (Master Plan) which will guide park development and recreation services for the next 15 years, and we would like your input about what you would like to see offered.

Purpose and Goal

The purpose of the Master Plan is to learn about Fremont’s growing population and what they would like to see offered by Parks and Recreation Services. The goal of the Master Plan is to provide clear guidance on how to meet the demands for future recreational, programming, environmental, and maintenance needs, as well as to establish priorities for facility improvements, future park development, and land acquisitions.
