Maryland Heights Parks Master Plan

Maryland Heights, Missouri

Vireo updated the Maryland Heights Parks System Master Plan with an inventory of parks, amenities, and core programs and an evaluation of demographic and recreational trends of the City to project future parks, trails, and open space needs.

A robust public engagement approach included interactive workshops, key leader interviews, employee interview meetings, focus groups, and online engagement. This was key to gaining preliminary input and review issues, challenges, strengths, and weaknesses of programs and services. Additionally, a statistically valid community-wide survey was conducted and supplemented by an online (open-link) survey. Vireo paid specific attention to cost and funding, and revenue strategies as well as implementation, to ensure this will become a dynamic document for the City.
