Master Planning Update of the Parks and Recreation Master Plan 2015 with Key Strategies for Implementation

Parks & Recreation Master Plan Update Website

Purpose of the Master Plan

The Parks and Recreation Master Plan is a tool to guide the Town of Windsor in parks and recreation planning on a long-term basis. The need for a Parks and Recreation Master Plan was established by the adoption of the Town of Windsor General Plan - 2015 in January of 1996. The Plan provides baseline data, policies and recommendations for day-to-day tasks, as well as standards for planning future parks and recreation facilities.
