About the Meck Playbook

Caring for our park system and planning for the future takes all of us. Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department is writing a new Master Plan, and we need your help developing a roadmap for the future.

The plan will establish community goals, policies, standards, and recommendations for Mecklenburg County’s recreation facilities, greenways, nature preserves, recreational programming, and land acquisition strategies for the next ten years.
