In 2018 Mayor Shanna Styron Sherrell tasked the Park Board with a visioning plan for the parks. They were specifically asked to focus on 3 Milton parks: Milton Community (Triangle) Park, Hill Tower Park, and Olympic View Park. This plan should be a vision for the next 5 to 10 years and will describe measurable goals that can implemented within an overall theme. View 2019 Park Board Visioning Plan.
