Restrooms Splash Pads Water Park (Lazy River, Wave Pool, Slides, etc.) Indoor Recreation Center/Aquatics Center
Hike and Bike Trails (Soft Surface) Hike and Bike Trails (Hard Surface) Dog Park
Picnic Facilities Swimming Pool
The themes present for needs relating to an improved indoor recreation center (and senior center), for various aquatics amenities, restrooms, a dog park, and trails are consistent throughout the feedback. When asked to rank funding priorities, the following list is ranked in general order, weighing options from first priorities to last priorities: 1. Renovating and upgrade existing parks 2. Preserving natural areas 3. Develop new hike/bike trails 4. Develop new neighborhood parks 5. Parkland acquisition 6. Develop new athletic fields Renovating and upgrading existing parks as the top funding priority is a great sign that the parks and recreation system is providing an acceptable number of parks in the right locations. To achieve the highest levels of satisfaction with Parks and Recreation, however, additional parks, programming, maintenance, and communication are necessary.
