The City of Moab developed its first citywide Parks and Recreation Master Plan (PRMP) in 2023. The PRMP will determine the future direction for Moab parks, open spaces, trails, and recreation programs for the next ten years.

The plan will:

  • Inform how we prioritize recreation projects and programs.
  • Guide how we improve parks and trails and expand programs to serve the community’s needs.
  • Help us make sure we have the money and capacity to maintain what we add or expand

Overview

The City’s park system is an integral part of the community and provides benefits to the community’s overall health and well-being. With nearly 50 acres of parkland, the City has four larger signature parks and several smaller parks, including a BMX and dog park. The Moab Recreation and Aquatic Center supports fun with the family and a good workout with its lap lanes and water aerobics classes, swim lessons, and relaxation in the leisure pool and on the play structures. To improve city parks and recreation, we need to better understand what’s important to everyone in the community.

The Parks Master Plan will be to provide a practical, comprehensive action plan for meeting the short and long-term needs of park facilities in the City. The new PRMP will outline how to meet the needs and wants of our changing community now and in the future. It will also:

  • Assess the condition and accessibility of parks and facilities.
  • Identify how to improve maintenance at existing facilities.
  • Identify future demand for the park system and services.
  • Promote awareness of city park services, programs, and offerings.

The PRMP will take about a year to complete and will be finalized in late 2023. Once approved, the PRMP will be added to the City of Moab’s General Plan.



The City hosted an in-person open house on September 13, 2023, at the Moab Arts & Recreation Center and is providing the same content in this online format to capture additional feedback from the community. The feedback you submit through this open house will help us build the draft Parks & Recreation Master Plan.

    Exploring Priorities

    Before we make recreation and park system recommendations as part of the draft Parks & Recreation Master Plan, we want to confirm what’s important to you. 

    From the survey, community priorities were for improving or upgrading to existing parks, expanding trail opportunities, and adding new recreational options in existing parks. The City’s funding capacity is limited, and prioritizing projects will help guide near-term investments in the park and recreation system.
