Deerfield Parks & Recreation Master Planning
The Comprehensive Park Master Plan was approved by the Board of Trustees on May 7, 2019 under Resolution #2019-31.
The purpose of the Comprehensive Park Master Plan is to offer strategies and operational policies that provide guidance in order to meet the needs of current and future Deerfield Township residents.
The Comprehensive Park Master Plan reflects Deerfield Township's strong commitment to provide high quality recreational activities for the community. The Plan provides guidance for future development and redevelopment of the Township’s parks, recreation programming, open space, trails, and facilities. It guides policy development, prioritizes demands and opportunities, and includes a strategic action plan to be updated every five years.
