Imagine a place where sprawling green fields meet vibrant playgrounds, serene walking trails wind through lush forests, and community events bring neighbors together in joyful celebration. This is the essence of our parks and recreational spaces, the heart and soul of Kitsap County.
We believe that every corner of our County deserves to be embraced by nature's beauty, and that's why we have developed the Parks and Recreation Open Space Plan, lovingly known as the PROS Plan. This visionary blueprint will shape the future of our parks and guide us toward creating an even more enriching environment for you, your family, and future generations to come.
The Kitsap County Parks, Recreation, and Open Space (PROS) Plan 2024 will serve as the implementation guide and strategic plan for managing and enhancing the County's park and recreation services while ensuring that the County remains eligible for state outdoor recreation funding.
This PROS Needs and Assessment Survey will be available throughout July to gather initial public feedback.
The Needs and Assessment Survey intends to identify how Kitsap County residents use the current facilities and programs and solicit preferences for potential park improvements.
Your voice is essential, so please complete the survey and remind your neighbors to take it, too!
The PROS Plan will identify the current inventory and condition of the parks system and propose updates to service standards for parks and trails. It will address goals, objectives, and other management considerations to continue providing quality recreation opportunities that will benefit Kitsap County residents and visitors. A critical element to the plan's success is the input from Kitsap County residents to describe their desired quality of life to the parks staff and planning team.
