The Parks & Community Engagement Advisory Board makes recommendations to the City Council regarding the development and operations of parks, playgrounds, and recreational facilities, and the utilization of these resources for well-integrated and complete programs.
Board members will engage with the community to evaluate parks and recreation programs and objectives, to develop interest in activities, and to solicit participation. The board will take part in the planning and coordination of community wide events.
Formerly the Park Advisory Board, the Parks and Community Engagement Advisory Board adds an important community engagement aspect, designed to develop and encourage more recreational programming and community events in Battle Ground.
