Kennesaw to Host Parks Facilities Master Plan Update Meeting

The Kennesaw Parks and Recreation Department and the Kennesaw City Council are pleased to announce the upcoming Kennesaw Park Facilities Master Plan Update meeting on Thursday, August 29, 2019 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Ben Robertson Community Center, located at 2753 Watts Dr NW.

This initiative is based on three, philosophical principles:
1. Parks are an essential community service and contribute to personal, social, environmental and economic benefits that foster individual health and community well-being.

2. Effective park planning engages people from all diversities across the community, strengthens community connections and creates a shared vision that aspires to achieving benefits through recreation. Park planning is a process that determines priorities, sets a course of action, and empowers residents to make decisions about and be involved in delivering the park and recreation experiences they most value.

3. This critical analysis will serve as a road map for future capital improvements, but more importantly, serve as a tool for improving the quality of life for Kennesaw’s residents and business community. Over the next few months the leadership of the Kennesaw Parks and Recreation staff will conduct a series of public meetings starting on Thursday, August 29, 2019, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm at the Ben Robertson Community Center located at Adams Park (2753 Watts Drive, Kennesaw, GA 30144).

The City will also incorporate other means of gathering community. Parks & Recreation will consolidate all the information gathered, resulting in a final plan to be presented this Fall.
