Parks & Recreation

Importance of Open Spaces

One of the most critical components in maintaining and enhancing a community's quality of life is it's system of parks, recreation, and open space. The careful location of parks and open space areas and preservation of the Town's natural resources as a complement to existing development can be a useful tool in guiding the Town's development into a logical, orderly and environmentally sensitive pattern.

In addition to recreational and aesthetic benefits, open spaces provide a framework for various land uses. Properly located, they become boundaries and buffers between conflicting uses of land and a nucleus for building neighborhood areas. Natural features can be preserved as valuable scenic and environmental attributes of the Town.

A park system and recreational program can also go a long way toward resolving the age-old problem of a community offering nothing for young people to do.
