Park Planning & Projects

The Department continues to engage actively with the community in planning for the needs of Edmonds citizens. Following are the most recent plans that guide our work.


Parks, Recreation and Open Space Plan & Community Cultural Plan

The City of Edmonds Parks, Recreation and Open Space Plan and Community Cultural Plan guide the Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services in their mission to provide parks, open space, recreation programs, and cultural services for the enjoyment of Edmonds residents and visitors. The 2013 update to these plans will build on the strategies and successes of the original plans and past updates.

The four‐phased PROS plan update process will continue through the fall and winter, with the plan completed by the end of February 2014 in order to renew State and Federal grant eligibility for the next six years.
