Seattle Parks and Recreation Annual Report - 2007



A group of teens participating in the 02 (Outdoor Adventure) Program enjoy river rafting northeast of Seattle.  O2 teaches teens about nature and environmental awareness and allows them to experience outdoor adventure activities.The breadth of programs offered at Seattle Parks and Recreation touches the lives of thousands of Seattle citizens every year. It's difficult to capture the variety of recreational opportunities available, but here's a sampling of what we provide to youth, teens, adults, seniors and persons with disabilities.

In 2007, we registered 13,690 participants in our summer camps at 24 different sites. More than 155,000 people visited our nine summer beaches, where we marked our 38th summer without a drowning. We had 13,233 registered participants in our before- and after-school programs. More than 3,200 youth played on 299 teams in our youth basketball teams.

Our programs provided 134,000 hours of direct service to senior adults. Parks' popular special needs overnight camps at Camp Long drew more than 230 campers in 2007. Day camps for special needs served an additional 250 youth campers. In 2007, there were 26,269 games and 45,160 practices scheduled on Seattle Parks and Recreation sportsfields for a total of 145,481 hours.
