Community Parks

Community Parks can range between 20 and 200 acres and are intended to provide recreation activities and relaxation for a community, i.e., both passive and active. Some activities may include concerts, camping, and recreational. A community park may serve multiple neighborhoods or a region depending on size and should be within close proximity when possible in order to provide adequate access.
