Project Update

An adopted Parks, Recreation, Open Space and Trails (PROST) Master Plan provides guidance and direction to staff, MPFDC and City Council for the future development of the parks and recreation system. The master planning process allows for the community to create a priority list for future park projects, and by having a current, adopted master plan, also allows the City to apply for grants through the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to help fund future projects.

The purpose of this plan was to provide direction and set priorities for growth of the park system based upon the growth of the community. Since the adoption of the master plan in 2010, the Mansfield Park Facilities Development Corporation (MPFDC) has completed numerous priority projects. At the same time, the community has continued to grow at a steady pace with new and changing priorities.

Staff would like to start the update process of the current plan this fall, with the goal of adopting a new 10-year PROST Master Plan in early 2020.
