Recreation, Parks & Cultural Activities Needs Assessment

We want to hear from you!

Every other year the Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities (RPCA) conducts a needs assessment to understand the community's desires for its park, recreation and arts facilities and programs. The information gathered helps determine priorities, develop budgetary needs, and improve services.

RPCA serves the community's park, recreational and arts needs in order to build community connections, improve your well-being, and invest in our environment. We need to hear from you to know how to best achieve these goals.

Get involved by completing the survey, providing location-specific feedback on a map, or ask questions about the project.


*Please note: In addition to this self-reporting feedback platform, RPCA worked with the National Research Center earlier this summer to conduct a statistically accurate survey with randomly selected households. This information will ensure that we have demographically representative survey results for the entire survey in addition to information collected here.

Visit the Needs Assessment webpage for more information and previous findings.
