Master Plan Update for Parks, Recreation, Trails and Bikeways

The Bikeways, Trails, Parks and Recreation Master Plan (Master Plan) will guide the improvement and future development of a robust bikeways, trail parks and recreation system in Morgan Hill. It weaves together three separate plans and will create a current, comprehensive and community-driven tool for staff and decision-makers to prioritize improvements and investments. The Master Plan will also help support goals and programs to improve our city’s health, environment, connectivity and recreation options.
