Do you like to recreate at city parks with friends and family? We need your input! 

Your input will help inform how we spend our limited resources over the next 6 years.

The survey should take about 12 minutes to complete and this feedback will help guide ongoing and future decisions regarding the management, maintenance, improvements and future investments in Bremerton parks, open space, recreation facilities, trails, programs and events.

This effort is part of the update to the Parks, Recreation & Open Space (PROS) Plan which provides a road map for providing high quality, community-driven parks, trails, open space, and recreation facilities and programs throughout Bremerton and identifies improvements that will be pursued over the next 6 years. The PROS Plan will be submitted to the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO) to maintain Bremerton’s eligibility for federal and state grants that will help realize these opportunities.

Want to stay involved in the PROS Plan? Save the date! The Parks and Recreation Commission will host a public open house on Tuesday, May 21st, which begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Sheridan Park Community Center at 680 Lebo Blvd in Bremerton.
