Learning by Example

The Parks & Open Space System Plan update gives the community a chance to step back and look at the parks system as a whole. According to public opinion surveys, overall satisfaction with parks and recreation in Bellevue is consistently rated good or excellent by the vast majority of Bellevue residents (usually somewhere just above or below 90%). This tells us that we are generally on the right track and we want to keep it that way into the future.

One way to stay relevant is to see what other communities have done with their park system and recreation programs. In your travels, either to neighboring cities or around the world, what parks have you seen that you thought were excellent? What made them excellent? Was it an outstanding facility, or view, or recreation feature? In other words, what models should we look to as we seek to add to and improve Bellevue’s parks over time?
