ABOUT THIS PLAN (Excerpt from document)
In accordance with the State's recommended five-year cycle for recreation planning, this updated Plan covers the five-year period of 2024-2028. The content and process follow the requirements of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) for a community parks and recreation plan. This document is intended to serve as a guide in the planning for future park and recreation opportunities, services, and implementation. Population shifts, new development, and changing attitudes towards leisure have added additional pressures to the community’s existing parks and recreation system, thus increasing the need for both short and long-range planning.

Recognizing the importance of regional recreation and cooperative planning efforts, community officials from across the County have joined together to develop a Multi-jurisdictional Parks and Recreation Plan (Plan) aimed at improving and developing recreational resources throughout Bay County. Bay County and the City of Bay City led the effort to complete this Plan. Fourteen of the governmental jurisdictions within Bay County have also participated in this Plan including the following 10 townships and three cities:
City of Auburn Bangor Charter Township City of Bay City Beaver Township City of Essexville
Frankenlust Township Fraser Township Hampton Charter Township Merritt Township Monitor Charter Township
Pinconning Township Portsmouth Charter Township Williams Charter Township Bay County
