Your parks, your voice: Snohomish County Parks seeks to inform long-range planning for parks and services with a 2021 survey update

During COVID-19, Snohomish County Parks continues visioning and strives for best ways to serve residents


SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash., April 22, 2021 – The Snohomish County Parks, Recreation & Tourism Division launched a survey today to gather input from residents. The Snohomish County Parks Visioning Survey can be accessed at the division website: This survey will collect feedback about park facilities and programs, user priorities and values, as well as barriers that might be keeping people from visiting the parks.  


Community input will help the division decide where to focus their efforts and public resources. They last reached out with a similar survey in March 2020, but after a record-breaking summer of outdoor use, they want to check in again and find out how the public wants the county to focus on Parks in the future. To gather feedback and hear from a diverse range of county residents, the survey has been translated into 11 languages. It will be open April 22 to May 20, 2021.


“Snohomish County leaders understand how important parks, open spaces, regional trails, recreational facilities and conservation properties are to the people of our region,” said Tom Teigen, Director of Snohomish County’s Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. “We respect and rely on input from the public as we plan for the next six years of investment in parks. Please take a few minutes to share your vision with us for county parks, trails, playgrounds, shorelines and open spaces. We value your time, input and support for your parks.”  


The 2021 survey is a continuation of visioning work that started last year and is revisited every six years in an effort to best serve every user. With 121 parks, 12,000 acres of open space, 100s of miles of trails and an expanding population, Snohomish County’s parks offer diverse outdoor and recreational options for our residents. This survey will help ensure these amazing resources will be used in the best way possible.
