Thank you for participating in the Dutchess County Parks and Recreation Community Needs Survey.

The purpose of this survey is to identify community needs and issues concerning County parks and recreational programs and facilities. The results will be used as a baseline for determining needs, desires and willingness to pay for facilities usage and program participation.

The information gathered will help shape the Dutchess County Parks and Recreation Master Plan. The County-wide Master Plan will create a roadmap to ensure an appropriate balance of facilities, amenities and programs throughout the County. The Plan will be used as a resource for future development and redevelopment of the County’s parks, open space and recreation system over the next five to twenty years.
