City of Redmond to Host Community Parks Meeting

The City of Redmond will host a virtual community meeting for residents to share their ideas and feedback on the future of Redmond’s parks and recreation at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 1.

The meeting will also highlight the results of the community questionnaire on the future of parks and recreation that was completed earlier this spring. Live interpretation will be provided in Spanish, Russian and Mandarin to allow for broad participation.

“The community’s ideas helped create the parks and recreation system we know and love today,” said Mayor Angela Birney. “We want to know what kinds of programs and facilities people would like to see in the future, so we can continue to build a world-class park system.”

Feedback from the community meeting will support updating the parks, arts, recreation, culture and conservation plan. This plan guides the management and improvement of our parks, playgrounds, community centers, forests and trails. It also informs future programs, activities and events. The last update to the PARCC plan in 2017 resulted in projects such as new batting cages at Hartman Park, the continuation of senior center meal programs, and the renovation of Westside Park to be accessible to the ADA.
