East Bay Regional Park District opens community survey

Online questionnaire to evaluate future priorities

As the East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) celebrates its 85th anniversary this year, the district seeks public input through a survey to help inform its future priorities.

The survey, open until Aug. 2, gives the public the opportunity to weigh in on both the recreational needs and the most pressing issues of the East Bay's diverse community.

"By completing this short survey, the public will help our board and staff to evaluate priorities as the Park District plans for a future with wide-ranging opportunities and challenges, such as wildfire prevention and climate change," General Manager Robert E. Doyle said in a statement.

"We also want to understand what services, programs and recreational activities residents would like to see added in their local parks, including what they think can be improved," Doyle added.

The EBRPD is the largest regional park agency in the nation with 73 parks and over 1,250 miles of trails in Alameda and Contra Costa counties.

The new survey is intended to give the public an easy opportunity to provide feedback to the EBRPD's Board of Directors and staff. Surveys can be found online or at the Alameda County Fair EBRPD exhibit located in the Agriculture Building.

"The Park District has a tradition of community outreach and transparency, with the 85th anniversary being a great opportunity to solicit residents' opinions and for residents to share what's important to them," said Dave Mason, EBRPD public information supervisor.
