Santa Cruz County Parks Department - Strategic Plan

The Santa Cruz County Department of Parks, Open Space and Cultural Services invites
YOU to participate in shaping the future of YOUR county!  


The Strategic Plan Process
The County Parks Department is creating its first Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan will be developed with input from the community and is an opportunity to create a collaborative vision for the future of County parks, programs and facilities.  

To see a quick overview of the County Parks system, please see the Park Finder - an interactive County Parks map.

Take a quick survey to let us know your thoughts on Santa Cruz County Parks' programs, activities, and parks. Surveys will be accepted through the end of May, 2017.

Close to 200 people participated in the public meetings, and over 700 survey responses have been recieved so far.  We have gotten great feedback from attendees, and will be compiling all of the comments.  Though the issues deemed most important by public meeting attendees differed slightly at each meeting, general themes were expressed by participants at all five meetings. A summary of the data will be available this summer, with a draft of the Strategic Plan in the fall.
