Middletown 2020-2030 Parks Master Plan

Middletown, Ohio

  • V3 was part of a design team providing planning services for the creation of the City of Middletown’s 2020-2030 Parks Master Plan. The team assisted the Parks Division and Park Board in developing clear and realistic goals, objectives and implementation strategies to best meet the current and future park and recreation needs.
  • This master plan will provide guidance for both short and long range planning for the City’s park system by integrating community input and recreation planning standards while also accomplishing the City’s desire to naturalize a significant amount of their parks to reduce maintenance.
  • The City maintains 33 parks including mini-parks, neighborhood parks, community parks, and some undeveloped sites. It includes two nature preserves, a Lock Tenders Museum, approximately 270 developed acres, 48 undeveloped acres, and four miles of paved trails.
  • The 10 year vision includes leveraging parks as quality of life improvement, by using the park systems to attract talent to serve in economic development efforts. With its presence along the Great Miami River, the Great Miami River Trail is a recreational asset for the City.
