The Roane County Parks and Recreation Department, together with the cities of Rockwood and Kingston are developing a long-range plan for Parks & Recreation, and we need your help. Your input is critical in helping us meet the needs of our growing community. Please take a few minutes to provide us with your opinions on recreation programs and facilities in Roane County. You should be 18 years of age or older to respond to the survey. We ask that only one survey per household is completed and submitted. The survey will remain open until June 9, 2019. This survey is anonymous.

Roane County is committed to improving the quality of life for residents and feels recreation programs and facilities are an essential part of their long-range plans. The County will also be holding a series of two public meetings in the coming months to gain further community input. Notices will be posted and published once the dates are set. We appreciate your participation in this survey and hope you will join us for the public meetings as well. Please do not hesitate to contact us at (865) 882-2640.
