Beaton Hill & Big Rock Park South Master Plan


Project Update:

The master plan process is now underway. The City finished the first round of public meetings in April 2022. Did you miss the virtual workshop on April 28th? No problem! The workshop was recorded and can be viewed under the 'Site Analysis' tab of this project webpage. 

Thank you to those who participated in the first round of community outreach for the park master plans, we appreciate hearing your input! We are now ready to share results of the community outreach, vision statements for the new parks, and preliminary park design layouts. Three park design layouts, also called master plan alternatives, have been developed for each park and will be ready for feedback in late July.

Join us at any of the following events to share your feedback on master plan alternatives:

  1. Join us for an open house at City Hall during the Farmer's Marker on Wednesday, July 27 from 4:00PM - 8:00PM
  2. Stop by our informational booth at Pine Lake Park during the Concerts in the Park event on Thursday, July 28 from 6:00PM - 8:00PM
  3. Participate in our second community survey, which will be available at the end of July. Stay tuned for more details!


A master plan is a conceptual design that is used as a guiding document for implementing future improvements at a park. A master plan is a multi-step process that receives input and direction from the public, City Council, and Parks & Recreation Commission. During the early stages of this process, long-term goals and objectives will be established to guide the development of design alternatives. Once design alternatives have been refined in to a final conceptual design, the next step is to determine a phasing and implementation schedule, based on recommended priorities from the public, City Council, and Parks & Recreation Commission. It is important to note that a master plan is conceptual and continues to be refined during the design phase, which can take several years to implement.


A total of $275,000 is allocated in the 2021-2022 Parks CIP budget for the Beaton Hill Park and Big Rock Park South Master Plan and is inclusive of all planning and design costs.
