Si View Park Program Plan

Si View Program Plan 2021

Si View Metro Parks has a strong commitment to enhance the quality of life of residents in Snoqualmie Valley through delivery of parks and recreation. In 2021, we are developing a Recreation Program Plan with a help of a consulting firm to define strategies, services, and direction for public recreation programming to meet the needs of the growing community and advance the District's mission.

Community engagement and input has been essential for the success of this process. Earlier this year, the Si View Program Plan project team mapped local demographics data and regional trends and collected community input from stakeholders and focus groups.

This Spring, a statistically valid resident needs survey was mailed to a random sample of approximately 3,000 District residents. We received over 400 responses, thank you! The results of this survey highlight the community's strong desire for variety of outdoor recreation programming, community events, and continued focus towards building out a connected trail network. The full survey findings report is available here: Si View Metro Parks District Community Interest and Opinion Survey – Findings Report 2021. Following the resident survey, a community–wide online survey was launch to gather input from the greater Snoqualmie Valley communities we serve. This online survey provided an opportunity for all area residents to share their priorities for future recreation programming and services – what services are most important and how should they be delivered. These surveys are one of several components of data collected that will be used to develop the Recreation Program Plan recommendations, due out later this year.

What does a recreation program plan accomplish?

  • It engages the community, leadership and stakeholders in meaningful, varied and a creative public engagement process to build a shared vision for recreation programs, as well as understand how to best serve current and projected recreation needs of the Snoqualmie Valley community;
  • It utilizes a wide variety of data sources and best practices to predict recreation trends and patterns of use and how to address unmet needs;
Si View Survey
  • It determines unique Level of Service Standards for the District to project appropriate and prudent actions regarding recreation programs and services and assess current recreation needs for programming;
  • It shapes financial and operational preparedness through innovative and “next” practices to achieve the strategic objectives and recommended actions and implementation strategies, while aligning with best practices;
  • It develops a dynamic and realistic strategic action plan that can ensure long-term success and financial sustainability for recreation programs and facilities, as well as action steps to support the diverse community that the District serves.
