HAGERSTOWN, MD (June 7, 2021) – Washington County Government encourages local residents to complete a short survey to inform the future development of parks, recreation programs, and facilities, as well as other preserved lands throughout the County. Click on the photo above or the links below to take the survey from now until July 30.
Washington County’s preserved lands, including parks, trails, waterways, forests, farms, and recreation facilities strongly contribute to the quality of life experienced by residents and visitors alike. In service of planning for these needs, Washington County is completing an update of its Land Preservation, Parks and Recreation Plan. This Plan presents a five-year vision for the County’s provision of parks and open space by identifying the strengths of the current system as well as opportunities for improvement. Public input is vital in crafting a plan that accurately represents community needs for recreation facilities and services so that funding can be allocated in a timely and cost-effective manner. Your participation in this short survey will help us understand the priorities of County residents in making improvements to enhance parks and recreational facilities so that their benefits are shared by all in the development of this Plan.
The Survey consists of two parts: a short questionnaire, and an interactive map where respondents can provide feedback directly on existing parks or offer suggestions for where new facilities or park amenities could be developed. Links to each of these two parts are provided below and also within both the survey and map.
