Seattle Parks and Recreation Open Space Gap Report and 2011 Update


The original 2001 Open Space Gap Report used Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping technology as a means of illustrating the open space goals in the City’s Comprehensive Plan and Seattle’s Parks and Recreation Plan 2000, thus helping to identify where future open space investments should be made. Thanks to Seattle voters, the 2000 Pro Parks Levy and the 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy have allowed the City to acquire and develop significant new park land.

The following Open Space Gap Report 2011 update uses GIS maps, demographic data and other information to track Parks and Green Spaces Levy-funded and other acquisitions and identifies remaining gaps in Seattle’s open space network.  The 2011 Update was also the basis for potential acquisitions detailed in the Seattle Parks and Recreation 2011 Development Plan.
