Park Master Plans

State park master plans are written for new and existing parks and present a balance of recreation opportunities with resource protection. Once adopted by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Commission and approved by the local land use authority (usually a city or county), a park master plan guides future park development. We encourage and actively engage park stakeholders and the community during the master planning process. Community members and others interested in park development are invited to comment at each stage of the process.

Current Master Plans

Smith Rock State Park

Work on the Smith Rock Master Plan resumed in Spring 2022 after delays due to staffing changes, additional coordination with other public entities and the pandemic. We are working on a draft document for release later in 2022, and will work to schedule an Advisory Committee meeting prior to the public release of the document. Thank you to everyone who has participated in the process and to those who have continued to provide feedback.
