Parks & Trails Master Plan

The Temple Parks & Trails Plan is a long-range master plan that focuses on improvements and expansion of Temple’s parks and trails network. Today, more cities are realizing the multitude of community benefits being provided by parks, trails, and open spaces including improvements to environmental, social, economic community features, and overall community health. This plan will assess the existing conditions of Temple’s parks and trails system and the city’s need for recreation and open space in the future.
In 2018, the Temple City Council chose to partner with Halff Associates, Inc. to combine the efforts of a city-wide trails plan and parks master plan. This combined parks and trails plan will include a series of recommendations that will provide guidance to the City and prepare for future population growth and continue the strong reputation Temple has for great park spaces. This plan will be prepared in accordance to guidance set out by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) for park master plans, which positions the City to receive grant funding for improvements.

Comprehensive Plan

The Temple Comprehensive Plan is a long-range planning document that guides the growth of the city over time. It serves as a blueprint for future development and redevelopment based on a community-established vision for Temple. Once adopted, the comprehensive plan provides a clear guide for growth and development decisions to ensure Temple remains a great place to live and work in the future.
In 2018, the Temple City Council chose to partner with Halff Associates, Inc., as the consultant for the comprehensive plan update. The plan will assess a variety of community characteristics, including land use and housing, transportation and utilities, parks and trails, and community design. The comprehensive plan will seek answers to questions such as: “What do we want the future of Temple to look like?” and “What do we need to do to get there?”
