Three Rivers Park District Needs Public Input For 2040 System Plan

The Three Rivers Park District is developing a new plan to guide park, trail, and program development over the next 20 years and is looking for public input to find out what the district is doing well and what can be improved. 

The plan will include a vision for the future of Three Rivers Park District and serve as a map to achieving that vision. It will determine the composition of parks, trails, and facilities, solidify the role and focus of resource protection and programming, define core competencies, and more, according to the Three Rivers website.

In the beginning stages of this plan, Three Rivers created a vision statement and three key goals for the 2040 System Plan.

Vision: Every person can discover, explore, and enjoy the wonder of nature everyday.


  1. You belong here. Three Rivers is relevant, convenient, and welcoming to all people.
  2. Parks matter. Three Rivers is essential to vibrant, healthy, and livable communities.
  3. Lead by example. Three Rivers is intentional and innovative in meeting the needs of today while anticipating and protecting the needs of tomorrow.

How You Can Help

Take the survey on to share your experience with the Three Rivers Park system and give feedback on what you would like to see in the future. Three Rivers also asks that you share the survey with friends, family, and neighbors to get as much feedback as possible. Members of the Three Rivers Park Board will also be at the Golden Valley Arts & Music Festival for those who would like to stop by and give feedback in person.
