Recreation Facilities On Private,
City & County Lands

Why is this important?

Recreation strengthens community awareness, enhances economic development, and promotes health and wellness. Existing park and recreation facilities provide year around programming for visitors and residents. Recreation facilities offer families and friends a place to enjoy their leisure time.

What is the measure?

The accompanying data identifies existing parks and recreation facilities in Tuolumne County. Recreation facility indicators were assessed in 2002 and identified in the County of Tuolumne’s Recreation Master Plan. The plan was a required element of the 1996 Tuolumne County General Plan which was adopted by the County Board of Supervisors. Measurements identified in this document were confirmed by "field count" in 2004, and 2008.

How are we doing?

Tuolumne County’s general plan was adopted in 1996. In that document, the Board of Supervisors recognized the value of parks and recreational facilities, and committed to improve and expand existing facilities. To meet that goal, recreation facilities are to be available, accessible, and maintained to current health and safety standards.

Since 2005, changes in availability, accessibility and maintenance have been minimal to existing park and recreation facilities. One skate park and 4 tennis courts were added.
