Take the Northcroft Park Master Plan Survey

The 2019 Parks and Recreation Master Plan was developed as a comprehensive 10-year strategic plan to guide future improvements for all City parks and recreation facilities. While the comprehensive Master Plan provides a high-level guide for City-wide planning, the City develops individual Master Plans to dive deeper into details for individual park sites.

What’s Happening
The City of Lake Forest and the Park & Recreation Board are engaging the community to help develop a Master Plan for Northcroft Park (1365 South Ridge Rd). During the first phase of the process, we’re gathering input to better understand how residents currently use the park and identify opportunities for improvement.

Over 100 people attended a community engagement session called Planning and Pizza in the Park on Wednesday, May 24. Through conversations, comment cards, and children's activity sheets, we heard great feedback from residents of all ages.

In addition to the engagement session, we're also gathering feedback through an online survey. Please take the Northcroft Park Master Plan survey! Take 5 minutes to tell us about how you use Northcroft Park today and what you’d like to see in the future. Whether you’re a weekly visitor or only visit the park a few times a year, we want to hear from you. The survey is open through Thursday, June 15.

Next Steps
Feedback collected through the online survey and the community engagement session will be summarized and used to create preliminary design options for the park. Those options will be shared for community review and feedback in early fall.
