A few minutes of your time will help make Barron County an even better place to visit and live!

Barron County has completed many improvements to our parks in recent years.  Our parks and recreational facilities are important to the quality of life of residents and our tourism economy.  Looking to the future, we are now updating the County's Outdoor Recreation Plan to identify potential future improvements and as a requirement for related grant funding. 

Your responses to this short survey will help us understand how you use our recreational facilities along with potential opportunities for the future. The survey will close on January 25, 2019 so we encourage you to complete the 5-10 minute survey at your earliest convenience.   

We appreciate your time and welcome any additional comments or feedback to:
