Parks Department

Ridgefield envisions an interconnected community with park, trail, and greenway system that contributes to the City’s small town character, provides a variety of recreation opportunities, and is an integral part of the community.

2021 Parks Board Work Plan

The 2021 Parks Board Work Plan guides the work of the Parks Board throughout the year. It was presented to the City Council on January 14, 2021. 

2020 Parks, Recreation & Open Space Plan

This Parks, Recreation & Open Space (PROS) Plan considers the park and recreation needs of Ridgefield residents and was prepared with the input and direction of local recreation leaders, stakeholders and residents. The Plan provides a blueprint for the growth, enhancement and management of the Ridgefield park and recreation system and is an update to the 2014 Parks and Recreation Comprehensive Plan. 

As a six-year guide and strategic plan for enhancing park and recreation services, the Plan establishes a path forward for providing high-quality, community-driven parks, trails, natural areas and recreational opportunities across Ridgefield.
