The project logo Academy - Gibson Village Park Master Plan

The City of Concord is embarking on the preparation of a Master Plan for improvements to Park and Recreation Facilties in the Academy-Gibson Village Area.  The master plan will address short and long term improvements, renovations, and new amenities, including the Academy Recreation Center, Webb Field, McInnis Aquatic Center, McAllister Field, Gibson Field, the Village Greenway, and other associated properties owned by the City along Kerr Street near the Clearwater Arts Center, and the property behind the Kerr Street United Methodist Church. Through site analysis and public input, the master plan will assess current conditions, identify program needs and develop a community Vision for future improvements at these park locations. This Vision will become the foundation for an enhanced park system that improves recreational opportunities for citizens of Concord.
