The Douglas County Parks Department is in the process of updating the Parks Master Plan. The original Park and Recreation Element of the Douglas County Comprehensive Plan was written in 1980 and a brief revision was completed in 2005.

The Parks Department is working closely with the Douglas County Planning Department to complete the new plan.  Planning Department staff will provide a progress report and take input from the Douglas County Parks Advisory Board at the Advisory Board meetings which are held on the third Friday of each month at 9:00 AM in room 310 of the County Courthouse.

The public is welcome to attend the Advisory Board meetings and provide input. Please check the Parks Department webpage at for possible changes in the meeting schedule.  Information regarding the plan update will also be available soon on the Parks Department webpage as well as the parks Facebook page.

Work on the plan will continue through the spring of 2016.  The final draft will be presented to the Douglas County Planning Committee and the Board of Commissioners for approval by December, 2016.
For more information contact the Douglas County Parks Department at 541-957-7001.





You can still call our office Monday – Thursday (10:00am – 2:00pm) to make your reservation or purchase a parking permit at 541-957-7001.
