Parks, Recreation & Open Space Plan

Pierce County's Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan
contains a long-term vision for the Pierce County parks system
and proposes improvements to the parks system base on that vision.

The PROS Plan builds on the foundation created by the 2008 PROS
Plan and covers the period from 2014 to 2030.

The Pierce County Council adopted the 2014 PROS Plan on
February 18th, 2014 through Ordinance 2014-03.

The Draft 2014 PROS Plan also contains:

  • An inventory of park properties
  • A discussion of County population trends and growth projections
  • An analysis of the communities’ needs and desires
  • Revenue forecasts for park development funds
  • A regional trails plan
  • A habitat component summarizing Pierce County’s extensive work on critical areas, shorelines, watersheds, and biodiversity plans over the last decade.
