The Parks and Recreation Master Plan will look at the existing parks, recreational facilities, programs, and services, and will help guide the future of parks and recreation based on public input. The plan will prioritize the needs and desires for upgrading and improving parks, recreational facilities, amenities, programs, and services. The City of Hampton has hired GreenPlay, LLC, a nationally-known parks and recreation management consulting firm, to oversee the plan.
