Give Input on Seattle Parks and Recreation Funding Priorities in Survey

Be sure to fill out the nine-question survey on the Seattle Parks and Recreation's planning site to help establish future funding priorities for the City Parks Department. Families have an opportunity to provide input on the types of recreation and facilities they would like to see more of, and if the parks department's focus should be on acquiring new parkland or improving currently-owned parks.

Seattle Parks and Recreation is planning for its acquisition and development projects for the upcoming six years and identifying the demands, needs and priorities in a 2011 park development plan. The goal of this plan is to establish eligibility for state grants through the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office.

People are also invited to attend the following meetings on this subject:

  • Wednesday, March 16, Jefferson Community Center (3801 Beacon Ave. S.) from 7 to 8 p.m.

 Wednesday, March 23, Bitterlake Community Center (13035 Linden Ave. N.) from 7 to 8 p.m.
