PARC plans meeting on Robbins Park June 15

May 27. The Town of Cornelius Parks, Arts, Recreation and Culture (PARC) Department will hold a drop-in community meeting on Tuesday, June 15, to discuss the latest draft of the updated Robbins Park Master Plan. It will be held from 5 pm to 7 pm at the Robbins Park shelter area. In case of inclement weather, the meeting will move indoors to the Community Room of Town Hall.

Citizens can come at any point to learn more and provide feedback.

A town-wide survey is open through June 25.


The original Master Plan for Robbins Park was adopted in 2008, and since that time, several phases have been completed in accordance with the original vision. Since the population of Cornelius has continued to grow and change, along with its citizens’ needs, wants, and interests, the Cornelius PARC Department has been re-envisioning the plan for the next phases of Robbins Park. 

Public workshops were held in February and August 2019, and online surveys were used as well. Using the input received, a new conceptual plan has been developed. Recreation amenities planned for the next phase include areas dedicated to conservation, both athletic and passive use, activity space, and a corporate shelter/event venue. Unfortunately, due to the COVID pandemic the master plan completion was postponed for awhile, but the process is now being restarted with the new community workshop.
