In 2016, the City Council adopted a new ten-year comprehensive plan for the Lynnwood Parks, Recreation & Cultural Arts Department called the 2025 Parks, Arts, Recreation and Conservation Comprehensive Plan. The PARC Plan is a long range planning document that works together with the City of Lynnwood Comprehensive Plan and the Capital Facilities Plan to provide goals and an action plan for providing park and recreation services through 2025.

Community involvement was integral in development of the new Plan.

In October and November 2013, the community was invited to open houses to let us know its parks and recreation needs, now and for the future. We received comments and ideas on a variety of topics, including potential recreation programs, new park development, open space conservation, volunteer projects, and much more!  We have also heard from our stakeholders, the teams, leagues and organizations that use our recreation programs and facilities.  All this information is valuable to us and has been used in the development of our PARC Plan. Exhibits and comments from the 2013 public open houses and stakeholders' meeting are available here.

Residents and stakeholders were also invited to participate in several surveys including an outreach survey conducted in 2014 and a statistically-valid survey conducted in 2015. Thank you to every resident and stakeholder who participated in these surveys.

With the development of the draft Plan complete, the community is again invited to preview the draft plan and provide public comment. Your comments will be utilized to finalize the Plan before it is sent to the City Council for approval in February.

The Lynnwood community was invited to attend open houses in January 2016 to comment on the draft 2025 Parks, Arts, Recreation and Conservation Plan. Materials from the Open Houses are available for your review here:
