Future of Parks
The Centennial Master Plan is the City’s blueprint for the conservation, restoration and enhancement of the Cincinnati park system. It was adopted 100 years after the first park master plan, the Kessler Plan, of 1907. The plan guides the administration, management and improvement of parks by the Board of Park Commissioners and it was approved in the Fall of 2007 as a decision-making guide by the City Planning Commission and by City Council. It represents a broad-based community consensus on the future of the park system.
