The Parks Planning & Development Division helps create and implement the vision for Kent's parks, trails and open spaces. We acquire new land to preserve for public use, and re-invest in Kent's existing park and trail system. We design and manage large park and trail construction projects, play equipment installation and replacement, park landscape design and capital improvements.
