Background



To date, the community outreach process of the El Cerrito Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan has included an online survey (with over 1,100 responses!), an online mapping forum, four community workshops, two Park & Recreation Commission Meetings and a series of stakeholder interviews. 

Themes that have emerged as important to the community include:

The Hillside Natural Area and Ohlone Greenway as valued recreation amenities that are unique to El Cerrito
To update and improve the City’s existing recreation facilities and programs 
Improved general maintenance in the City’s parks and recreation facilities
Pedestrian access throughout the City’s parks and recreation network – walking, hiking and biking
Youth recreation – toddler amenities, teen programming, youth enrichment opportunities
A Senior Center as an important recreation amenity

Community Involvement

Community members are encouraged to help develop the plan. Please sign-up to be kept informed of the process and to be notified of community input meetings about the development of the Plan.

Purpose of a Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan

The City of El Cerrito is planning to develop a Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan that will serve as a long-range planning and asset management document and provide a framework for understanding the recreational and open space assets the City owns, services it provides, risks it assumes, and financial investments it requires to maintain, repair, rehabilitate and improve these assets.

 The Master Plan Will:

  • engage the public to determine community priorities for parks and recreation; 
  • include long-range planning strategies to maintain, rehabilitate and improve the City’s network of parks, facilities, recreational, and open space assets, including current unfunded park and recreational opportunities; 
  • evaluate the effective use of the City’s financial and physical resources to proactively implement the Master Plan.
