Lake County's Countywide Parks and Recreation System Master Plan was developed using a
three-pronged approach that examined existing parks and recreation facilities, analyzed how
recreation services are provided throughout the County, and used a grass roots public
involvement program to gather public input. Three key areas, parks, environmental land, and
trails, are addressed in the Master Plan. Additional elements of the Master Plan include data
and analysis of each key area addressed, a mission statement and objectives that define the
vision for recreation in Lake County, specific recommendations to implement the master plan,
and an appendix containing additional documentation related to the Master Plan.
The primary focus of the Lake County Trails Master Plan is to enhance the existing trail facilities while identifying the community’s needs and priorities for the development of a comprehensive and interconnected trail network. The Master Plan will serve as a guide to the locations, design, prioritization, implementation, and maintenance of a comprehensive trail network within Lake County.
