Hutchinson Parks & Recreation Master Plan:

Welcome!

Hutch Rec and the City of Hutchinson work together to provide cohesive parks and recreation services. Together, along with the support from Heal Reno County, we are undertaking a planning effort to better understand resident usage and needs for the park and recreation system.

Funding for this project was made possible by the Pathways to a Healthy Kansas initiative from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas (BCBSKS). BCBSKS is an independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.

THANK YOU, City of Hutchinson & Hutch Rec, for adopting the Parks & Recreation Master Plan for our community!

    This project is to create the City of Hutchinson and Hutch Rec’s combined Healthy Communities and Parks & Recreation Master Plan, integrated with the enhancements from GP RED’s Surveillance and Management Toolkit. This will be a full master plan focused on research and health outcomes to address positioning parks and recreation in Hutchinson as partners for prioritizing and addressing preventative public health factors.

    A nationally known parks and recreation management consulting firm, GreenPlay LLC, was hired to oversee this process. Funding for this project was made possible by the Pathways to a Healthy Kansas initiative from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas (BCBSKS). BCBSKS is an independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association. Heal Reno County is also a partner in our parks and recreation master plan process.
