Proposed Projects

2020 parks map quadrants no parksBased on the analysis of our current facilities, population and demographic needs and feedback from residents, these are the projects identified as top priorities over the next ten years.  Ranking was determined by the advisory committee based on the most urgent needs and demands; order of implementation is subject to funding, land and other factors.

Projects are broken down by service area, with larger projects like a recreation center impacting the entire city and other projects, like adding neighborhood parks (small parks with limited amenities like Bell Park) or community parks (large, more diverse options like Chandler Park) or upgrades to existing parks listed in the specific area of the city. 

Planners use four quadrants for Mansfield, with the boundaries of Hwy 287 running north to south and Walnut Creek (the physical waterway, not street) running west to east.


IMPORTANT NOTE: The goals and strategies listed below are DRAFTS and in no way finalized or guaranteed. Further analysis and review is still underway to determine if each aligns with our overall vision and priorities. Not all projects listed will make the final plan, those decisions will be made based on additional analysis and public feedback. If you have any thoughts. concerns or feedback related to these concepts, please send us a message or indicate your thoughts on the survey to help our committee narrow their decisions.

Do you have thoughts, opinions or ideas about any of these projects? Did we miss something? Are you especially excited about something? Please let us know! Your feedback will help us make the final list and priority order.
