The main purpose of the Parks Master Plan is to assess the current state of La Marque’s key parks and open space system, address citizen needs and wishes for improvements to these parks, and to establish facility/equipment design and maintenance criteria for current and future parks and outdoor recreation areas. The City of La Marque Parks Board and city staff provided an inventory of nine park facilities, mentioned in Chapter 3. These Park facilities were reviewed by Ardurra staff during site visits and meeting with residents and city representatives. In addition to onsite meetings, the Parks Board conducted an on-line survey to acquire opinions of resident likes, dislikes, and their preferences for each existing park.
The goals identified through these interactions were:
1. Create a positive, uplifting park experience for all residents.
2. Increase recreational activities.
3. Provide greater efficiency / value in future park development and maintenance.
