Parks, Recreation, & Open Space Plan

Planning for Parks & Greenways

Park IconSummary
In a 2018 survey and visioning process, the Battle Ground community identified parks, trails, and recreation resources as a priority for the well-being and quality of life for residents. 

A process is currently underway to update the city's Parks, Recreation, and Open Space (PROS) Plan. The purpose of the Plan is to identify a vision for Battle Ground parks, open spaces, and trails for the next 20 years, including specific goals and actions for achieving that vision.

The completed PROS Plan will:

  • Inventory and evaluate existing parks and recreation programs;
  • Assess the need for additional park land, greenways, trails, and recreation facilities;
  • Make recommendations for operations and maintenance;
  • Offer specific policies and other recommendations to achieve goals and objectives.

Where we are now

We need your input.
We are kicking off this project by asking for your ideas on creating a unique park and recreation system within Battle Ground. We want to hear from you to learn what your needs and desires are related to parks, how you use them, and your preferences for potential improvements as funding becomes available.
