Parks and Recreation Master Plan Update: Airport2Park!

The City of Santa Monica is updating the 20 year Parks and Recreation Master Plan and has been hosting meetings with the community throughout the summer. The last planned event is this Sunday at the Summer SOULstice Festival – 11am to 1pm.

We encourage you to share your input via the online survey that will be ending soon! This is a great opportunity for all of us to give input and to reinforce community support for more open space and to replace Santa Monica Airport with a Great Park when it closes in 2029.

What kind of park do you want to replace the airport? Let the City know! Miles of protected bike and pedestrian paths? A Bike Campus with public bike repair facilities — a BMX track? How about coffee and snack concessions for people walking, biking and enjoying the park?

The online survey that will take 5-10 minutes and will ask you to drop pins on a map for your favorite beach and park and give feedback about existing recreational programs. Near the end of the survey you will be asked about LOOKING TO THE FUTURE. This will be your opportunity to drop a blue pin to focus on the Airport and put your ideas for a GREAT PARK!

Here is the LINK to the SURVEY: https://app.maptionnaire.com/en/3892

Join us in supporting a Great Park at SMO: More recreation? More Sports? More Nature? More Open Space? This is your chance! Do the survey!
