King County Parks seeking community opinions about the future of its regional trails system

Summary

Give King County Parks your opinions about its regional trails system and what could be improved, and you could win a two-night stay at one of the fantastic yurts at Tolt-MacDonald Park.

Story

As part of its ongoing commitment to providingSammamish_River_Trail the best possible services and amenities, King County Parks is gathering ideas from the public on how it can improve its regional trails system.

Regional trails are those wide, paved trails or hard gravel paths with gentle grades, such as the Burke-Gilman, Sammamish River, Interurban, Green River and Cedar River trails. King County Parks manages more than 175 miles of regional trails throughout the county, offering opportunities for recreation and non-motorized transportation.

As part of an effort to increase the visibility and use of regional trails, King County Parks is seeking the public’s opinions about the regional trails system – including what trail users like about it and what features could be improved or added. 

A link to the survey can be found at bitl.ly/kingcounty1. The survey is open now through Oct. 5, and takes approximately four minutes to complete. 

Everyone who includes an email address at the end of the survey will be entered in a drawing for the chance to win two nights in a yurt at Tolt-MacDonald Park.

Information collected from the survey will help King County Parks gain a better understanding of residents’ use and knowledge of regional trails. This information will help shape how Parks and its partners communicate about and promote the use of regional trails, effectively reaching King County residents and inspiring them to explore these treasured public assets. 

King County Parks’ vision is regional trails for all ages and abilities to connect communities, inspire healthy living, and support a sustainable future.
