San José Parks and Recreation Wants Your Thoughts

BCAC Members and Community,
San José Parks and Rec wants your thoughts on how to vision their programs for the next 20 years.   They have an informative 4 min video of what has been accomplished under the last plan and links to an on-line survey…easy peasy.
Our district is blessed by several large parks, but our population is growing – particularly in the River Oaks area – and our character is likely to shift due to the BART station and its associated development.
So take a moment and be a player for our future.

San José’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services is the organization that delivers and operates over 200 parks, over 60 miles of trails, 50 community centers and programs that touch the lives of individuals and families in our community.

They are updating our strategic plan, ActivateSJ, to sustain our parks system, while strengthening our focus on services and the design of parks and public facilities. ActivateSJ consists of five community-inspired guiding principles that were crafted by engaging with the community at special events, community meetings and an online survey. 

SJ Parks department would like your input on the guiding principles – their approach to delivering a world-class, sustainable parks and facilities system that enhance quality of life in San José. Please watch their video and complete the survey below by Friday, May 31. Please also forward this to others so they can provide feedback. Your feedback is essential as we set the path for the next 20 years. Thank you for your support of PRNS!
