The City of Verona realizes the importance and benefits its parks and open space system has on the City's character and quality of life and is committed to providing for the recreational needs of its current and future residents. This plan intends to guide the continual improvement of the City's park and open space system and to maintain the City’s eligibility for State and Federal park and recreation grants. This plan envisions a connected system of parks, open spaces, and trails throughout the community, related to the city’s natural resources, geography and neighborhoods.
The plan is also intended to be a support document and component of the City of Verona Comprehensive Land Use Plan. This plan along with the City’s other long- range plans and development-related ordinances, will be used to implement the City's parks and recreation program.
