Parks, Recreation and Greenways Master Plan Update

The Town has contracted with consulting firm McAdams to update the Town’s Parks, Recreation and Greenways Master Plan. 

The planning process undertaken shall develop a comprehensive vision for the Town of Holly Springs Parks and Recreation Department as a whole; individual parks, open spaces, greenways and trails, recreation facilities, amenities and programs.  Expect numerous opportunities for public input as Town Staff and consultants work with residents and stakeholders to develop a plan that truly represents the wants and needs of current and future Town of Holly Springs residents. 

The updated Parks, Recreation, and Greenways Master Plan will replace Section 3 of the Vision Holly Springs: Town of Holly Springs Comprehensive Plan and will require the recommendation of the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee and the approval of the Town Council.
