City of Wisconsin Rapids
Outdoor Recreation Plan

This plan assesses the existing outdoor recreation system of city parks, and school facilities in the City of Wisconsin Rapids. Recreational needs will be identified based upon public input, national & state guidelines, and Wisconsin Rapids & NCWRPC staff analysis. The Wisconsin Rapids Parks Committee will review all of this information and guide the overall direction of recommendations to improve the recreation system over the next five years.

Submission of this report to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources establishes eligibility for Wisconsin Rapids to apply for a variety of Federal and State Aids to improve the park system.

Non-profit groups, foundations, and the general public may also use this document to coordinate their own private efforts for developing outdoor recreation facilities.
