Open Space and Recreation Plan

The open space & recreation plan is being updated for 2020. We need your help!

Thank you for participating in the process so far! We received great input at the May Public Visioning Workshop and on the public survey. The City is in the process of updating the Plan chapters. A draft plan will be released for public review when ready so keep checking back!

Development and preservation of open space and recreation facilities - whether natural conservation lands or active or passive recreation - is critical to maintaining a high quality of life in Framingham and respecting and preserving the natural systems of our community.

2013 Open Space & Recreation Plan (OSRP)

The Community and Economic Development (CED) Division worked with the City's Open Space and Recreation Implementation Working Group (OSRIWG) to prepare the 2013 Open Space and Recreation Plan.

The Working Group is comprised of representatives from the Department of Public Works, Conservation Commission, Parks and Recreation, Planning Board, Board of Selectmen and Community and Economic Development.

The OSRIWG works aggressively on accomplishing tasks and projects outlined in the OSRP Action Plan (PDF), including the protection of key parcels throughout the City.
