City of Raleigh

Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources

Adopted in May, 2014, the City of Raleigh Parks,

Recreation and Cultural Resources System Plan (System

Plan) is a supplement to the City of Raleigh 2030

Comprehensive Plan. Expanding upon the vision of the

2030 Comprehensive Plan, the System Plan is a long-

range planning document that is meant to help shape the

direction, development and delivery of the city’s parks,

recreation and cultural resource facilities and services

over the next 20 years. The System Plan achieves this

through a four-part process shown in the diagram to the

right.

The planning process utilized extensive public

engagement in the form of a City Council-appointed

citizen Planning Committee, public engagement websites,

social media, focus groups, a statistically valid survey

and an online survey, community visioning workshops,

community meetings and open houses, and outreach to

boards and commissions including the Citizen Advisory

Councils (CACs) to fully involve the community in each

stage of the planning process.
