Parks and Open Space Strategic Planning and Capital Projects

The Community Parks Master Plan project aims to create a comprehensive vision for the future of Frederick Recreation Area, which includes Bella Rosa Golf Course, Milavec Lake, Marx Open Space, and Centennial Park. By actively involving the community in the planning process, the project will develop a 20-30 year vision. The project is scheduled to commence in Spring 2023 and conclude by the end of 2024.
