In 2021, we deeply evaluated our park spaces and the communities that lie within our neighborhood park regions. These findings help us shape our goals in providing updates to our park properties and the rate in which we work with our surrounding communities.

The Neighborhood Park Network Plan is the plan for the future of our city's smaller parks in residential areas. It details the strategic operations and planning required to update Danville's 21 neighborhood parks. The plan includes timelines, maps, descriptions of park planning organization, and specific known amenities for park improvements. This plan is built on the Neighborhood Park Evaluation from 2021.
We are excited to be in the development process for some neighborhood parks already. Learn more about the upcoming green spaces near you below.
Westmoreland Neighborhood Organization is designing a safe and accessible park on community land which they will be donating to the city to maintain and program upon completion. Through the process of working with city and regional partners to design, fundraise, and construct the park, residents are fostering a sense of community pride and taking ownership of the greenspace in their neighborhood. Check out this link to learn more about their process and progress, and join them in the effort of making Danville’s newest neighborhood park!
