2022-26 Parks Master Plan

We are beginning the process of putting together our next five-year Parks and Recreation Master Plan and we want your input. If you live in the community, participated in our programs, or have used our parks or facilities, we want to know what you think. Please take 8-10 minutes to respond to our survey at the link below by Feb. 21. It'll help us evaluate what we currently have and then create actionable goals for improving our park system and recreation programs over the next several years.

You will also have an option to enter into a prize drawing at the end of the survey.

Scholarship Program

The Livonia Parks and Recreation Department is proud to offer Livonia youth, ages 17 and younger, a scholarship program to make recreation programs and activities affordable for as many youths as possible. As of Nov. 30, we are accepting applications for 2021.

The scholarship, funded by St. Mary Mercy Livonia through the Healthy Livonia initiative, is designed to assist Livonia families financially by subsidizing the cost of programs up to a maximum of $300 per child, per year; on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Livonia Parks and Recreation will cover 85% of the program fee and the parent/guardian will be responsible for 15% of the fee per approved program. Funds available based upon donations and sponsorship of the program. This scholarship is another example of community partners breaking down barriers for youth participation in exercise, enrichment and activities.
