City Park Master Plan

This updated draft master plan document is a long-range vision for City Park. Established in 1857, City Park is one of the oldest parks in Manhattan, Kansas. The park has seen many transformations through its 160-year existence. The master plan responds to the site’s history, existing conditions, and community-identified priorities. This document begins with site inventory and analysis. Subsequent chapters describe community engagement efforts and concept development. The closing chapters describe the plan’s recommendations, phased implementations, and budget estimate. The Master Plan for City Park is currently under development and seeking community input. The draft City Park Master Plan Document can be found here. If you would like to provide feedback we welcome you to email Park Planner, Alfonso Leyva at
