Master Plan 2021


Make your voice heard by participating in one of our Community Open Houses. Your input will help guide park improvements throughout the community for the next five years as part of our Parks & Recreation Master Plan.
The City of Southfield evaluates its parks and recreational programs every five years to ensure it is providing citizen with the necessary and desired facilities, programs and staff for the highest level of recreation experiences. The information is then compiled into the Parks & Recreation Master Plan.
If you can't make it to one of the Community Open House events you can submit your input via the Community Survey online by clicking the button below or pick up a copy of the survey to complete and bring back at the Parks & Recreation Office at the Municipal Campus (26000 Evergreen Road) or Beech Woods Recreation Center (22200 Beech Road).
