Parks & Recreation Master Plan
The City of Stow completed a Parks & Recreation master plan study in 2022 to establish priorities for the future of our parks, trails, recreation facilities, and programs and services within the City. As part of the process, the community was invited to participate in an online survey that was conducted by representatives from the project planning firm, PROS Consulting. We had a GREAT response to the survey. We HEARD you! Your voice and opinions were very important to the City as we moved forward through the master plan process. The results of the survey aided the City of Stow in taking a community-driven approach to making decisions that will enrich the future of our City and positively affect the quality of life we provide for our residents.
The result is a five-to-ten year strategic action plan that will guide the City in the future planning, development and implementation of our parks, facilities, trails, programs, events and services.
