PADUCAH – The public is invited to provide input in the development of the Paducah Parks & Recreation Master Plan during an open house on Thursday, January 31 at the Robert Cherry Civic Center located at 2701 Park Avenue. Citizens are encouraged to stop by between 6 and 8 p.m. to share their thoughts on the future of the City of Paducah’s parks, facilities, recreation programs, community events, trails, and open spaces.
Parks & Recreation Department Director Mark Thompson says, “These two hours of input are incredibly important as we develop this Master Plan. Several members of the Parks & Recreation Department staff in addition to the consultant team assisting us in this process will be available to listen to your ideas, suggestions, and priorities. Plus, there will be interactive stations to gather input. I encourage everyone to stop by, if only for a few minutes. We want to hear from you.”
Thompson adds, “When complete, the plan will provide a vision to guide the future growth, development, operations, and programs of the City’s parks and facilities, recreation and event programs, open spaces, and trail system. Your input is crucial in helping us create a comprehensive parks plan that includes the most desired services for our citizens and community.”
For those who are not able to attend the open house, input can be provided through the online survey at
