Residents are encouraged to take the survey before it closes Nov. 24.

With more than 1 million people moving to the DFW area since 2010, it’s no secret that Fort Worth is growing — and the city’s Park & Recreation Department wants to make sure that recreational programs and facilities are growing along with it.

The 2019 Park & Recreation Survey is open through Nov. 24, and provides an opportunity for residents to give feedback about the city’s recreational activities and facilities. Current facilities include community centers, athletics fields, golf courses, parks and trails, as well as some of the department’s special-use facilities, like the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge and the Log Cabin Village.

About the survey

The survey explores how residents use current recreational facilities, and how frequently they do so.

It also gives residents the opportunity to provide feedback on facilities that they think are needed in Fort Worth parks. This includes traditional park facilities such as playgrounds and trails, and some facilities that currently have a small or limited presence locally, like skate parks, disc golf courses, dog parks and age-friendly playgrounds.

The Park & Recreation Department is collaborating with National Service Research on this survey, which is administered about every five years. The results help inform the direction of the Park & Recreation Department’s Master Plan.

Residents are encouraged to take the survey before it closes. All survey feedback is anonymous, and residents are asked to complete only one survey per household.
