Worthington will continue to be natural and sustainable, as we value parks, green space, outdoor activities, and sustainability
Parks/Recreation/Greenspace rank highly as a reason people choose to live in Worthington. Respondents seem split on whether we need to maintain our existing parks/recreation/greenspace, enhance our existing, or create new parks/greenspace in addition to the existing parks/greenspace. Sustainability seems to be an important topic in the City.
- The City currently has 20 parks and maintains over 221 acres.
- Public participants were torn between improving existing facilities (new restrooms, general clean up/renovations) and creating new greenspace/rec/park areas.
- Approximately 50% of public survey respondents said parks are a #1 item important to them for quality of life in Worthington.
- Some public input was hesitant about development/high rises due to affecting greenspace.
- How would you propose to pay for improvements/new acquisition of park land?
- Do our parks need more amenities (like shelters, restrooms, and playgrounds) or just open space?
