In early 2022, the City completed an update to its Parks, Recreation & Open Space (PROS) Plan. The citywide PROS Plan establishes a road map for providing high quality, community-driven parks, trails, natural areas and recreation offerings for Gig Harbor. The PROS Plan creates a framework to allow the City to respond to new opportunities as they arise and be strategic about planned investments to the park and open space system.
Citizen input was crucial to make sure recreational goals and priorities are consistent with community needs and interests. We heard from many residents through our online survey, virtual stakeholder discussions and open house. This process has provided an excellent opportunity to identify ways in which to best serve the recreational needs of the community over the next 6 to 10 years.
