Park Planning

Prominent aspects of the City of Snohomish’s distinctive character are its parks, recreation, and open space resources.  The City’s Long Term Park Plan ensures the City’s parks continue to meet citizen needs and wishes.  Park planning is a community-centered effort to plan, design, and construct park facilities for the enjoyment of the community.  The following methods are used in park planning efforts:

  • Community open house forums to learn and mirror citizen needs and wishes in planning and design
  • Development of construction plans and designs
  • Review of proposed projects for their impact on the park system
  • Application and management of grants and capital projects
  • Creation and maintenance of park planning documents
  • Special project analysis
