    The park system includes natural areas and preservers, nature trails, wooded areas, urban plazas, community centers, skate parks, indoor and outdoor performance stages, open lawns, cultural / historic / art centers, playgrounds, golf courses, pools and water features, athletic fields, and courts for sports (among others!). 

    We want to know:

    • What types of facilities do you use or are most important to you?
    • As a follow-up, how could these facilities better serve you?
