Parks, Recreation and Open Space Plan

Every six years, the City of Burien Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services (PaRCS) department works with the community to update the existing Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) plan. Once adopted by the Burien City Council, the PROS plan helps guide the City’s management and development of park properties and recreation programs.

The PROS plan process is a grant funding eligibility requirement set by the State of Washington Recreation & Conservation Office. The PROS plan also helps the City fulfill the Growth Management Act planning requirements for Comprehensive Plan Elements as outlined by the Washington State Department of Commerce. It also helps the City be eligible for other state and federal grants for acquisition and development of parks and recreational facilities.

The City conducts extensive community engagement in the development of the PROS Plan. A major update to the PROS Plan is underway. Learn more about how to be involved with updating the PROS Plan on the Burien Community Hub.
