• Parks and Open Space System Plan

    The Parks and Open Space System Plan contains the community's long-range vision for acquisition and development of parks and trails and preservation of open space. It also sets the standards whereby the park, trail and open space system is operated and maintained over time.

    Many of Bellevue's parks and trails that we use and treasure today were first conceived as an idea in the Parks Plan.

    About every six years, Bellevue updates its Parks Plan. The City Council adopted the current plan in early 2016.
