Project History

In April 2017, the City of Wilsonville entered into an agreement with GreenPlay, LLC, to complete a city-wide Parks and Recreation Comprehensive Master Plan.  The last comprehensive master plan for the Parks and Recreation Department was completed in 2007.

In May 2017, the department mailed a statistically valid questionnaire to a random sample of 3,500 households, and launched an online survey in June 2017. The surveys 
asked a variety of questions to assess local preferences for the types of parks, facilities, recreation programs and services desired by local residents.

In August 2017, the results of the survey were shared in a presentation to the public at Wilsonville City Hall.  The results will be used to provide critical information in determining community values, satisfaction levels, needs and priorities for the City’s long-term planning efforts to be included in the Parks and Recreation Master Plan.

Also in August 2017, the City Council approved an amendment of the contract for the Parks and Recreation Master Plan with GreenPlay, LLC.  Parks and Recreation staff recommended expanding the scope of the contract to include developing a master plan for Boones Ferry Park that incorporates the adjacent 5-acre, Willamette River frontage property formerly owned by the Duckworth family and acquired by the City in 2015 (see map).

Project Background

This plan will build on the 2007 Parks an Recreation Master Plan.  Since the adoption of that plan, the City of Wilsonville has increased its commitment to Parks and Recreation by consolidating services previously provided by the Public Works Department and Community Services Department into a Parks and Recreation Department.  Challenges associated with unprecedented growth and increasing demand for recreation services necessitates the need for a long-term mission and vision for Parks and Recreation which includes a plan to address current deficiencies, goals and needs for future park development, recreational services, trails and open space preservation.  

Goals and Objectives

The Parks and Recreation Master Plan will assess current and future recreational needs of the City of Wilsonville in order to better plan, fund, manage and develop parks, facilities, programs and trails.
