Let’s build the future of Aurora together.

The city of Aurora is planning the future of its Parks, Recreation and Open Space Department. The purpose of this project is to understand the community's needs now and into the future.

Aurora has 8,000 acres of open space, 99 developed parks, two reservoirs, three nature centers, five golf courses, six recreation centers and 10 community pools.

You are at the heart of this story. Together, let’s create a parks, open spaces and recreation system throughout Aurora which reflects the beauty and diversity of our community.

What do you want your parks, recreation and open space to look like?


Project Vision and Themes:

Equitable Access: How do we ensure everyone can enjoy Aurora’s parks, programs, events and facilities?

Community Connections: How can Aurora’s diverse communities be celebrated in our parks, open spaces and recreation?

Healthy and Safety: How do we improve health and safety of ourselves, our community and our environment?

Operational Efficiencies: How can we maintain our parks, open spaces and recreation facilities, both new and old?

Sustainable Growth: How can we grow as a city while protecting the nature around us?
