Learn What’s in Store with the Updated Parks Master Plan

Interested in hearing what’s in the Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan? Join us for one of the upcoming SPIN, Planning & Zoning Commission or City Council meetings!

The Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan is a component of the Southlake 2035 Comprehensive Plan. The comprehensive plan reflects the community’s values and serves as a blueprint for Southlake’s future. It also establishes a framework to coordinate the City’s activities and guide the City’s decision making for the next several years. The comprehensive plan and its components are updated on a regular basis.

The most recent master plan was adopted in 2013 and amended in 2018.

On August 6, 2019, the City Council appointed the Parks and Recreation Board as the City of Southlake Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan Committee, to oversee the development of the Parks Master Plan Update. Staff also held meetings with the Southlake Kids Interested in Leadership (SKIL), Southlake Youth Action Commission (SYAC) and the Senior Advisory Commission (SAC) to assist with updates. A meeting was also held with the Carroll ISD School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) to update them on the plan development process.

The Parks, Recreation & Open Space Master Plan Committee recommended approval of the plan at their May 10 meeting. The plan now goes to the Planning & Zoning Commission for review and approval, followed by a SPIN meeting and open house, and then on to City Council for review and final approval. The schedule is below:

  • May 20 – Planning and Zoning Commission Meeting
  • May 25 – SPIN Town Hall Forum and Open House
  • June 1 – City Council 1st reading
  • June 15 – City Council 2nd reading
