In October 2016, the City contracted with GreenPlay, LLC to develop San Gabriel’s first comprehensive Parks and Open Space Master Plan known as Dream Your Park. The final plan will be reviewed by the Community Services Commission at their meeting on June 4, with a public meeting held at 6:30 p.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall. We invite you to attend to review our final plan.

The Master Plan Process As part of the process, a team of staff from Community Services, Public Works and Community Development, along with Community Services Commissioner Senya Lubisich, formed the Master Plan Committee and worked closely with GreenPlay on the development of the draft plan. A key component of the master plan process was to gather input from residents and stakeholders on San Gabriel’s parks and recreation facilities, services and programs. Over several months, the team gathered public input through the following methods:
Another important component of the plan looked at the profile of the community, including population growth, demographic changes and trends. This, along with the information gathered through the surveys, helped to identify the needs of the community and guide the efforts to improve the delivery of parks and recreation programs and services.
