The Master Planning process helps to insure that the Waukesha County Park System meets the long term recreational needs of residents while preserving and enhancing the County’s exceptional natural resources. The updated Master Plans will guide improvements and enhancements, by determining new uses and facility development for the immediate 10-year future of each park, which helps prioritize and budget for the projects that make up the County’s five-year Capital Improvement Plan. The open house format helps the County gather input from all user groups.
The Waukesha County Park System is a natural resource based park system that demonstrates stewardship while providing recreational and educational opportunities.
