Bellevue Parks & Community Services is one recreation provider among many in the City of Bellevue. The Recreation Program Plan defines the city's role as a recreational provider in this system. The plan establishes a set of priorities for Parks & Community Services to guide the investment of public resources in support of recreation programs.

The Recreation Program Plan works in concert with other key Parks & Community Services documents, including the Parks & Open Space System Plan and the Human Services Needs Update. Together, these documents convey the department's functions in providing parks, recreation and community services to Bellevue residents.
