City of Port Aransas Parks and Recreation Master Plan Survey

The City of Port Aransas Parks and Recreation Department is updating a ten (10) year plan for the development and implementation of park facilities and recreation programs throughout the City.

We recognize that the City has limited dollars and we are asking City residents and visitors for their input in the update of this plan to determine what park facilities, activities and programs the City of Port Aransas should implement in the future.

Please take a moment to voice your opinion on these issues that help us make decisions concerning the quality of life we all want in Port Aransas. The Survey can be completed online at the following link:
