Wylie Park Master Plan
Wylie Park Master Plan Update
About the plan
Wylie Park is, and always has been, a family fun destination for all ages, both for local citizens and for tourists alike. The last comprehensive master plan completed for Wylie Park was in 1987. Since that time, multiple planning studies have been completed for a number of different areas within the park including the expansion of the campground, the Circle of Flags area and for the ongoing development of Storybook Land and the Land of Oz. The Wylie Park Master Plan is being completed to develop a clear and prioritized strategy to combine all of the previous planning studies into one comprehensive plan. Public input on the preliminary draft of the master plan is critical to the success in implementing the plan.
Wylie Park is an outstanding attraction for Aberdeen but there are many opportunities to make it even better. The staff of the Aberdeen Parks, Recreation Department, along with the planning firm Confluence, has developed a draft of the master plan that covers a variety of areas including improvements to the lake and beach area, Circle of Flags area, Storybook Land, Campground, zoo area and other general improvements within the park. We want to hear from the public on their opinions about the proposed improvements outlined in the draft of the plan. Public comments and ideas regarding the plan will help us to better understand if there is community support for the proposed improvements and for the continued development of Wylie Park. The purpose of the planning process is to establish priorities and funding strategies for park improvements for today and into the future.
