“Citywide Survey to Shape Future of Parks and Recreation”

From a press release:

“The Bowser Administration and DC Department of Park and Recreation (DPR) released a citywide survey to gather public input to create, “Ready2Play”, a new 20-year parks and recreation master plan for the District. Now live on, the survey will be available until December 20, 2020.

Residents can also find in-person survey copies at all open recreation centers and aquatic centers.

“We’ve seen a tremendous increase in the use of parks and green spaces across DC since the onset of the public health emergency and excitement around the resumption of limited recreation and aquatic centers,” said DPR’s Director, Delano Hunter. “Under Mayor Bowser’s leadership, we have greatly strengthened the District’s recreation infrastructure. This survey is an opportunity for residents to help shape how our parks and recreation centers are funded, designed and programmed for generations to come.”

The Ready2Play plan will take a holistic view of parks and recreational opportunities throughout the District, not just at DPR’s existing parks and recreation centers, but also at federal parks, school sites and other locations. Ready2Play will also identify key priorities and initiatives for DPR to pursue, set long-term goals, establish metrics to track progress and help prioritize where and what types of amenities, programs and investments are made.

DPR will be hosting community meetings citywide in January 2021. Any community group or organization that would like DPR’s planners to attend an upcoming meeting can fill out a meeting request online. More information on the plan and expected timeline is available at Residents can send any comments, questions, or concerns directly to DPR by emailing [email protected]
