The Strategic Plan Process
The County Parks Department is creating its first Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan will be developed with input from the community and is an opportunity to create a collaborative vision for the future of County parks, programs and facilities.  

To see a quick overview of the County Parks system, please see the Park Finder - an interactive County Parks map.

Take a quick survey to let us know your thoughts on Santa Cruz County Parks' programs, activities, and parks.

Upcoming Public MeetingsThe Parks Department will be holding a series of meetings throughout the county, and we need to hear from you and your neighbors!  Your input is essential as we identify how we can improve County parks, programs and facilities. What do YOU want to see in YOUR County Parks? Please join us as we look to the future of our County! Childcare and Spanish translation services will be available.
