Welcome to the City of West Sacramento’s
Parks Update 2028!

The City of West Sacramento is currently updating its Parks and Open Space Master Plan to include development and programming opportunities for the next 10 years. The current Parks Master Plan was adopted in 2003, with minor adjustments made in 2006. Since then, there have been significant changes in development and demographic trends, as well as local government economic shifts that impact the demand/need for a variety of recreation amenities and the ability to fund them. Additionally, changes to the natural and built environment have resulted in new opportunities to create unique recreation amenities along riverfront bluffs, miles of levees, agricultural landscapes, and progressive urban developments that promote active living.

The recently adopted City of West Sacramento General Plan 2035 includes a Parks and Recreation Element Policy Document which requires the City to review and update the Parks and Open Space Master Plan every 10 years to establish updated goals, policies, and standards for existing and proposed parks, open spaces and recreation trails, as well as programming needs. The Policy Document calls for the Parks and Open Space Master Plan to cover at least the succeeding 10-year period, with greater detail devoted to improvements planned for the first five-year period. To ensure that the Parks and Open Space Master Plan continues as a relevant planning document, it must be updated to reflect the City’s current and forecasted development, growth and programming needs through 2028.

Once completed, the updated Parks and Open Space Master Plan will build off the General Plan 2035 Parks and Recreation Element and serve as a catalyst for developing a financially viable and expanded parks, open space and recreation system that represents the unique characteristics of the City.
