Welcome to Norfolk Parks & 
Recreation Master Plan Website

This multi-lingual, ADA accessible website seeks your input to help invent the future of Norfolk’s parks, recreation, trails, and programs through this planning process.

The goal of the Master Plan is to provide guidance on how to meet the demands for future recreational, programming, environmental, and maintenance needs, strategize funding and establish priorities for facility improvements, and sports plex feasibility for the next 15 years.


The City of Norfolk is in transition with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, budget reductions, and staff furloughs. These are all daunting challenges and obstacles that the City of Norfolk’s Department of Recreation, Parks & Open Space department is faced with. Due to these challenges, we as a department realized it was time to re-invent, re-brand and reshape ourselves in the way we provide program delivery, how we provide services to all citizens and most importantly ensuring that we remain efficient, effective and essential even with downsized operations.

We turned to PROS Consulting as the agency that could help us obtain these goals and to accomplish our new mission as they are pioneers and currently highly sought-after trendsetters in the field of Parks & Recreation Consulting and Master Planning led by their Principal, Mr. Neelay Bhatt.
