The City of Portage has initiated a planning process to update the Parks 5-Year Recreation and Open Space Plan.  The public is invited to a community Open House on Thursday, September 8, from 6 – 8 PM at Portage City Hall (7900 South Westnedge Avenue) to be part of this community-driven, participatory design process.  The purpose of the meeting is to gather community input for future improvements to our public green spaces and trails.  

Attendees will be asked to share their vision and ideas for enhancements to the Portage park system and programs.  Landscape Architects will be present to facilitate the discussion and answer questions.  Input received at this workshop will be used to help formulate goals and objectives for the plan.  If you cannot attend the workshop, please send your comments via email to In addition to the public meeting, an online survey will be available through September 30 for residents to provide feedback on the park system and submit ideas for the future.  

To complete the survey, visit For more information, call Portage Parks & Recreation at (269) 329-4522.
