This survey is divided into three sections:

  1. About your organizaton: we would like to know more about your organization, group, agency, or business, your connection to King County Parks, and who you serve. This information will be aggregated so we have a better idea of the people, issues, and recreational interests represented in this survey.
  2. Customer satisfaction: we would like to hear about your experience doing business with King County Parks and our staff.
  3. Planning for the future: we would like to better understand the barriers and deficiencies in our current system, as well as prepare for emerging trends in recreation and the future open space needs of our residents.

This is the first time we have asked our partners for feedback specifically about how we're doing and how we can better help you serve your members, participants, and constituencies. We recognize that many questions on this survey are open-ended and require time and reflection to respond. We value your time and are offering to compensate your organization at $75 for completing the survey.

Directions on how to request compensation are included at the end of the survey. Please contact Frana Milan at [email protected] if you have any questions about this matter.

Thank you for your input!
