Parks and Trails Planning
Lake County owns a number of parcels throughout the
county that are developed or could be developed for parkland
purposes. Periodically the County completes an inventory and
assessment to determine if the parkland and recreation needs of
county residents are being met or if additional development is
needed. In addition, the assessment evaluates existing trail
systems to determine if there is adequate connection between
schools, parks, and population centers and it helps to identify
locations where additional trails are needed.
In 2012, Lake County conducted site surveys of many of the County-owned properties and solicited comments regarding parks usage from Lake County residents through a public survey. Data gathered was used to develop the “Lake County Parks and Trails Management Plan” which was adopted by Lake County in November of 2014.
