21st Century Parks Vision Implementation

Contact us

As the county’s population increases and becomes more racially, ethnically and linguistically diverse, gaps are increasing between users and the recreational facilities and services that Parks & Recreation offers.

To meet changing community needs and interests, Parks & Recreation developed a new vision for its parks and recreation system, implemented in 2021: A dynamic, community-centered system that provides opportunities for our ever-changing community to engage with inclusive and welcoming parks and recreation sites and programming.

Residents and current users helped inform what this realized vision would look like. Their guidance will help shape budgeting, planning and community engagement efforts over the next decade.
