The Comprehensive Master Plan serves as a guide for the Parks & Recreation Commission and staff for the next 5 to 10 years. Surveys were sent to 5,000 homes within Yakima city limits. Individuals could complete the survey and mail it back at no cost or could complete the survey online. In addition to the mailing, Parks & Recreation staff hosted a booth at 7 community events. The events were the Yakima Downtown Farmers Market, Miller Park and MLK Jr. Park Viva La Musica concerts and a Franklin Park concert. Survey contact cards that included a QR code, which allowed people to scan with their phone and easily complete the survey online, were provided to people at the events. Hard copies of the survey were also handed out along with Summer Program Guides, maps of the park locations, and various brochures about upcoming programs and events. A total of 695 surveys were returned. The attached report is the combined data from the online surveys and the mail in surveys. This information was shared with Yakima Parks & Recreation Commission members on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 .
