Recreation, Parks and Open Space Master Plan

Project Overview:

In 2015, the City of Mountlake Terrace developed a comprehensive and visionary Recreation, Parks & Open Space Master Plan (RPOS) to guide the development and acquisition of new recreation facilities, parks, and open spaces, as well as the renovation of existing facilities over the next twenty years.

The Master Plan reflects the city’s vision of a vibrant community that responds to the needs and desires of its residents, friends, and visitors for fun, healthy, exciting, and diverse activities in an award-winning Recreation and Parks system. The plan looks at where we are now, what the anticipated needs are for the future, and how we can improve and upgrade our existing facilities.

The purpose of the Recreation, Parks and Open Space Master Plan is to create a clear and concise set of goals, policies, and objectives that provide direction for the City’s future growth. Starting in 2020, the city will undertake an update to this plan with a completion deadline of 2021. There will be many public meetings, stakeholder meetings and opportunities for public input to help shape and guide the formation of this parks plan.
