The City of Pearland is preparing plans to improve its system of parks and open space areas, trails and sidewalks. City leaders want to make sure that all citizens, whether walking or cycling, can reach their destinations using safe and efficient pedestrian facilities. Are there adequate pedestrian connections between neighborhoods, schools and parks? Where are the gaps? When considering the City’s network of parks, facilities and recreational programs, are there areas of the City that need additional parks and trails? Is there a need for more athletic fields and/or more passive recreational areas?
