City leaders want to hear what neighbors think about our parks, recreation facilities, and more! 

The city’s Recreation Department is working on its next master plan – a guide in providing recreation programs and services for the community, as well as local park maintenance and services. The plan includes an inventory of programs and services; consideration of the structure of the department’s staff, budget, and collaborations in the community; and an action plan for the next five years. 

We want to hear input from the community during this process, so we have a short survey about parks and recreation in the City of Battle Creek. It is estimated to take five to six minutes. Find the survey in three languages, at these links:

All of these links are available together through the city website’s home page. Visit and scroll to City Spotlights. 

Stay tuned for more news and information throughout this process, including a draft plan for public review, and open houses where you can see the draft plan and learn more from the staff who provide our parks and recreation services.
