Seattle Parks is able to serve all our citizens with quality recreation and stewardship opportunities today and tomorrow by:

  1. acquiring new Parks properties to serve more people
  2. sustainable building and design programs
  3. development of public policies that help us protect parks

Through our staff's commitment to environmental stewardship, Seattle Parks is better able care for a parks system that reflects the natural history of our region and the recreational pursuits of its citizenry. Long-range planning, combined with the use of sustainable materials and design, will ensure that future generations are able to enjoy Parks without the threat of overuse or mis-use of our resources.

Through close working relationships with our diverse communities and other government agencies, Seattle Parks is able to continually improve our Park system for all people, and respond to future environmental challenges.
