Albany -- The City of Albany wants to know what kind of recreation you want to enjoy.

The Recreation and Parks Department is working on a 68-thousand dollar master plan update study to give ideas on how to improve parks, facilities, and programs.

A consulting firm called GreenPlay will present results of the study in a few months. Surveys have been sent to 2-thousand randomly selected people to find out what they want.

"Anyone that gets one of those we would like them to take a few minutes of their time to fill it out. It talks about our recreation facilities as a whole, the type of programs that we have, or the type of programs that we would like to have," said Parks and Recreation Department Interim Director Fran Stalter.

The Recreation department welcomes feedback from the community and will host upcoming public meetings.

The department keeps up the city golf course, two cemeteries,  8 gyms, and more than 70 parks.
