How can parks be better in Ontario County? Officials look for public opinion through survey

  • / Updated:
  • Staff Report 

Ontario County is inviting residents to provide feedback on recreational offerings, current park conditions, and future improvements and projects via a public input survey. This input will directly inform the County’s Parks and Recreation Master Plan which is currently being developed. 


“The Parks and Recreation  Master Plan will be the first of its kind for Ontario County. It will help the County create a vision for its parks, guide the development of future park facilities and services, and identify and address gaps in the parks system,” Todd Campbell, Chairman of the Ontario County Board of Supervisors said.

The Ontario County Parks System currently includes seven (7) recreational spaces which the County owns and maintains. The County works to make recreational and educational opportunities available to all members of the public. The County’s forthcoming Parks and Recreation Master Plan will act as the basis for future parks and recreation planning, programming, and development. 

Via the public survey, community members have the opportunity to provide their honest opinions and  sentiments about the Ontario County Parks System. Questions on the survey will cover issues such as  barriers to participation, facility needs, user satisfaction, and public outreach. Public survey results will  inform the goals, objectives, and recommendations developed as part of the Parks and Recreation Master  Plan. 

“We encourage everyone to complete the survey,” Campbell continued. “The recreational needs and  interests of our community are important factors that will guide the planning process.” 

The public input survey can be accessed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/OntarioCoParks.
