2nd Quarter Update April 2022
The 2020 Parks Recreation and Trails Master Plan established the criterion for identifying areas that are underserved as it relates to parks and recreational spaces. Per the Master Plan, an underserved area is one in which the residents are more than a five-minute walk away from a City park. Based on this criterion, staff has identified two underserved areas in DeSoto. In Q4, staff will begin developing land acquisition options for park space within the two identified areas.
