The City of Odessa Parks & Recreation Department wants to give their sincere appreciation to all those who participated in the Parks Master Plan Update. Through Public Forums and online Survey, we had over 1,300 participants help define and prioritize the future improvement projects and programs for the next ten (10) years.
Letter from the Director
To the Citizens of Odessa,
The Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan update, a plan that will determine the future improvements for the Parks system for the next 10 years, has been completed. I personally would like to thank those that participated in the Master Plan Survey, as this survey determines the needs and establishes goals for the Parks system listing future improvements in a prioritized order, through a direct input process from the citizens. The City of Odessa Parks and Recreation Department web-site will display a progress report of the improvement projects and updates on recreation programs/ events.
The Mission Statement for the City of Odessa Parks and Recreation Department is:
"The City of Odessa Parks and Recreation Department is responsible for creating and maintaining our system of park and recreation facilities dedicated to providing quality services to improve the quality of life for the citizens of Odessa."
It is that mission statement that sets the goals for us each day in making a positive difference for the citizens of Odessa and the future of Odessa.
