The City of New Bern Parks & Recreation Department is conducting a survey to determine the interest and needs in amenities and facilities offered by the department.  The information collected will also be used to help guide the design and development of the future Martin Marietta Park.  Martin Marietta park will support a number of different activities including non-motorized boat, kayak, canoe, and paddle board access to the park's lakes.  This survey should only take a few minutes to complete.  Your input would be greatly appreciated as we plan for the future of Parks and Recreation in New Bern.
