2019 Parks Master Plan Update

Based on the 2014 Isabella County Parks Master Plan, the Parks Commission had contracted with a local architectural firm to create park development site plans for each county park. The County Parks & Recreation Commission is currently updating the Isabella County Parks and Open Spaces Master Plan for 2019. We would, again, like your input to help establish priorities for these proposed improvements. Please take a few minutes to give us your thoughts on the following proposed park improvement projects for those parks that you are most familiar with.

You can view the site plans for the parks here.

Surveys received by July 15, 2018 will be eligible to win an annual Isabella County Parks vehicle permit.

County Park User Questionnaire can be submitted online here or a hard copy can be printed and filled out here.
