City of Aurora Parks, Recreation and Open Space to Host Master Plan Open Houses

Following two months of community input regarding Our Parks, Our Places: A Plan for Aurora’s Parks, Recreation and Open Space, the city of Aurora’s Parks, Recreation and Open Space Department and Sasaki Associates are hosting two public open houses about the project.

Open houses will be hosted from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 20, at Central Recreation Center, 18150 E. Vassar Place, and from 2 to 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 22, at Moorhead Recreation Center, 2390 Havana St. The planning process is organized around the five key themes of equitable access, community connections, health and safety, operational efficiencies and sustainable growth. To create an inclusive environment, there will be opportunities to provide feedback both in person and virtually.

The open houses will include multiple stations discussing topics such as public feedback received to date, how Aurora’s park system compares to those of other cities, existing environmental conditions and overall access to the system.

Key information will be available in Amharic, English, Korean, Mandarin, Spanish and Vietnamese, and interpretation services will be provided at the open houses. Childcare will be available for children 3 years old and older. There will also be food trucks on-site and food truck vouchers for participants.

Additionally, residents will be able to share their opinion through a new online survey launching Sept. 20. Comments and questions can be shared any time on this website or by email to
