Parks and recreation are vital components to health and wellness, and an essential element of community planning is the space devoted to satisfying active and passive community recreational needs. Parks, recreation, and leisure spaces collectively are elements that enhance and contribute to the quality of life found in the community.
Investments in quality parks, recreation, and open space are hallmarks of healthy, vibrant communities. The purpose of this chapter is to analyze Greenville’s existing parks and recreation facilities, assess present and future community needs, and make recommendations on new parks and recreation facilities.
In order to remain eligible for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department grant program, the City of Greenville is required to update its Parks and Recreation Master Plan every five years or before major developments occur.
The plan is a living document and will be updated annually to reflect the latest developments regarding the city's parks and trails system. We invite you to read the Parks and Recreation Master Plan for yourself and email us your thoughts and ideas.
Developers are also encouraged to utilize the document when designing and providing these recreational areas.
