It is the Town's vision and goal to create a ‘recreation destination’ that the entire community of Mammoth Lakes will actively enjoy, value and ultimately be proud to call their Park. The guiding principle builds from the “A Town within a Park” concept that will deliver local residents and visitors high-quality complementary recreation facilities at Mammoth Creek Park. The proposed improvements will be designed to work with the existing play areas and parking. Complementary programming will promote a degree of excitement, individual expression, exploration, pleasure, challenge and accomplishment leading to an enhanced quality of life.
The goal for the Community Multi-Use Facilities at Mammoth Creek Park is to update and increase community facilities, downtown venue space and programming. The Town has allocated funding for the initial planning, preliminary design and the environmental documentation effort as well as identified and approved the majority of funding for the planned project. These facilities will be located on Town-owned land within Mammoth Creek Park on the west side of Old Mammoth Road.
The Recreation Commission held several Community Workshops where community members were asked for facilities and programming input. From these workshops, the Town Staff came up with three programming “Playbooks” addressing the program and facility needs of the community.
