We are reimagining our neighborhood parks with residents, and would love for you to help! We know that the best way to make our parks relevant to communities and loved by residents is to listen and respond to our community's needs. Sign up today to be part of the neighborhood parks planning process and help us decide what park features best fit you and your community's needs!
Neighborhood park Evaluation Findings
Over 2021, we deeply evaluated our park spaces and the communities that lie within our neighborhood park regions. These findings help us shape our goals in providing updates to our park properties and the rate in which we work with our surrounding communities.

Neighborhood Park Network Plan
The Neighborhood Park Network Plan is the plan for the future of our city's smaller parks in residential areas. It details the strategic operations and planning required to update Danville's 21 neighborhood parks. The plan includes timelines, maps, descriptions of park planning organization, and specific known amenities for park improvements. This 2022 plan is built on the Neighborhood Park Evaluation from 2021.

Third Avenue Splash Pad
Plans are in place for a splash pad at the Third Avenue Park location. See developmental plans and what the park could look like in the virtual community meeting recording below.
Westmoreland Neighborhood Organization is designing a safe and accessible park on community land which they will be donating to the city to maintain and program upon completion. Through the process of working with city and regional partners to design, fundraise, and construct the park, residents are fostering a sense of community pride and taking ownership of the greenspace in their neighborhood. Check out this link to learn more about their process and progress, and join them in the effort of making Danville’s newest neighborhood park!
