Open Space Plan

An Open Space and Recreation Plan (OSRP) profiles our parks, facilities, and programs. The document also gives a five-year vision for these and future community assets.

Having an OSRP gives Lowell access to important state grants. A successful plan depends on your thoughts and ideas. Here are five ways to contribute:

1. Attend Public Meetings

Our next public meeting will be on Monday, August 13 from 6-8pm at the Lowell Senior Center. Bring your ideas and a friend!

Khmer and Spanish translation services will be available.

2. Complete the Survey

Please complete and share our survey (English). The survey is also available in Khmer (ភាសាខ្មែរ) and Spanish (Español).

Submit surveys online, email them to, or mail/deliver them to:

City Hall
375 Merrimack Street
Lowell, MA 01852
Attn: Christine McCall

Planning staff are also bringing surveys to community meetings. We hope you will consider completing one!
