Park Planning

Parks Planning Resources

Parks and open space are a prominent part of the City of Snohomish’s distinctive character.  Park planning is a community-centered effort to plan, design, and construct park facilities for the enjoyment of all.

This Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Long Range Plan (PROS Plan) guides the City’s work.  The Plan was last updated in 2015, and a new update has been drafted for the 2024-2044 planning period.  The draft update can be viewed at the link below.

Parks, Recreation, and Open Space (PROS) Plan Update

The PROS Plan, developed in 2015, provides a framework for parks, recreation, and open space within the city based on an analysis of existing conditions, community demographics, residents’ needs, and regional trends for parks and recreation activities. The City has used the PROS Plan over the last several years to inform new park acquisitions, facility improvements, and open space resources.
