Parks & Recreation Master Plan

About The Parks & Recreation Master Plan

The City of Yorba Linda’s recreational facilities, programs, and park amenities are essential to the composition of the community. Knowing this, the City Council unanimously voted to accept the updated City of Yorba Parks and Recreation Master Plan on August 19, 2014.


The Parks and Recreation Master Plan provides direction to continue the orderly and consistent planning, acquisition, development, and administration of the parks and recreation programming in the City. The Parks and Recreation Master Plan continues to provide a vision for the future, taking into account the existing condition of facilities, and the total parks and recreation needs and desires of City residents.

Future Planning Tool

The Parks and Recreation Master Plan (PDF) guides decision-making regarding policy and contains an inventory and assessment of recreation programs and service offerings, operations, maintenance, and capital improvements to be made over the next twenty years that will enhance the quality of life in the City. 

The Master Plan also provides an assessment of equestrian needs and options for developing future equestrian facilities within the City. The Master Plan will be used as a planning tool for staff and the Parks and Recreation Commission when making recommendations to the City Council for future facility improvements and for delivering parks and recreation services through the year 2030.

Public Outreach

The Master Plan is the culmination of over two years of public outreach with community stakeholders, user groups partners, and appointed and elected officials. These discussions with the community will continue as we work together to ensure that the parks and recreation system continues to enhance the lives of the Yorba Linda residents.
