    2019 Ankeny Parks & Facilities Comprehensive Plan cover

    The 2019 Ankeny Parks & Facilities Comprehensive Plan guides park improvements, park development, recreation programming and trail system expansion through the year 2040. The Plan was drafted through a yearlong public planning process including several sessions with the Advisory Committee, a public open house, online park input, a statistically valid survey of residents, community stakeholder meetings, City staff input and professional consultation and management provided by Confluence. The Plan establishes goals, timelines and guiding principles for the management of the City’s developed parks, trails, recreation programs and open space improvements. Ankeny City Council approved a resolution to adopt the plan on Monday, March 18, 2019.
