Survey closes February 29th!
Your feedback is important and will be used to develop the Moorpark Parks and Recreation Master Plan update. The updated plan will provide the City with a modern and community-driven vision for the parks and recreation system in Moorpark.
ABOUT THE PROJECT:
The City of Moorpark is updating its Parks & Recreation Master Plan. The new Plan will guide the future of the City’s parks, open spaces, trails, recreation facilities and recreation programming over the next decade.
Moorpark is a diverse multicultural and multi-generational community that actively enjoys its parks and recreation programs and facilities. The City is looking to create a Parks and Recreation Master Plan that addresses the needs and interests of all community members while strategically evaluating the opportunities and resources available to make the community’s wishes a reality.
The City has hired the California-based planning and design firm KTUA to lead this process with a commitment to inclusive community-wide engagement. Community input will be collected through a diverse set of outreach strategies including public workshops, pop-ups, surveys and online tools.

UPCOMING EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES:
A community survey will provide critical information about community satisfaction levels, needs and priorities. In December a random sample of residents received a statistically valid survey in the mail. In January the survey was opened to the entire Moorpark community.

The City’s Parks & Recreation Master Plan was last updated in 2009. Since that time the City has built three additional parks, installed a dog park, and acquired interest in over 200 acres of additional open space (just to name a few changes). Today the Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department manages 19 parks, a Recreation Center, an Active Adult Center, a Library and over 400 acres of open space.
Although the City’s population has remained relatively stable, its makeup is shifting away from young families and toward older adults. Residents are interested in a diverse range of sports and activities like pickleball, frisbee golf, futsal and aquatics. Changes within the City, as well as evolving trends, technologies and consumer preferences in the parks and recreation industry underscore the City’s need for an updated Parks & Recreation Master Plan.
