ABOUT THE SEATTLE PARKS AND RECREATION STRATEGIC ACTION PLAN

Seattle Parks and Recreation developed a 5-year Strategic Action Plan in 2008 to establish a vision, and guide decisions. Public and staff participation were an integral part of this process to ensure the Plan reflects the needs of the Seattle community.


Between 1998 and 2008, there was a substantial expansion in Seattle's park and recreation system. In the face of continued growth, changing demographics, and emerging parks and recreation trends, Parks and Recreation strategically evaluated its facilities, services, and operations to meet its commitments to Seattle.

The Strategic Action Plan identified emerging issues and policy questions relating to Parks and Recreation's current strengths, challenges and opportunities. The purpose of the Plan was to focus Parks and Recreation's activities to ensure the most efficient and effective use of public tax dollars. It expressed Parks and Recreation's vision and mission at that time. It also guided budget, capital development and investment decisions, and provided a planning framework for partnerships with other departments, organizations and businesses.
