Regional Park and Trail Planning

The Pinal County Open Space and Trails Master Plan (OSTMP) was approved by the Board of Supervisors in October of 2007.

Pinal County’s Open Space and Trails Master Plan promotes the quality of life of the region by providing areas of passive and active recreational opportunities, while conserving existing resources, such as natural scenic beauty, view corridors, wildlife habitat, agricultural resources designated at risk, and cultural heritage for the benefit of present and future generations. This Plan will encourage appropriate long-range growth planning opportunities, provide for a wide range of recreational activities for residents and visitors, preserve the county’s rural and natural open space character, and contribute to the well-being of its communities.

Open Space & Trails Master Plan

In 2013, the Pinal County Board of Supervisors created the Open Space and Trails Department. One of the major areas of focus for this new department was the implementation of the OSTMP. Department staff, in partnership with the Pinal County Open Space and Trails Advisory Commission, has begun that process.

This website will be a resource for Pinal County residents and visitors to get regular updates and information on current planning efforts for regional parks and trails identified in the OSTMP. Additionally, we will be posting other important information about these projects, including photos of some of the wonderful landscapes we are working with.
