Park and Open Space Plan

In June 2016, the Kent City Council adopted the 2016 Park and Open Space Plan.  The plan takes a new approach to defining Level of Service (LOS)  and shifts focus away from expansion of the park system toward taking care of the city's existing park inventory.

Morrill Meadows/East Hill Park Renovation

The city is planning for the renovation of these two parks to function as one, replacing worn out amenities while we also create space for a planned YMCA.  

Green Kent Partnership

This is our 20-year environmental stewardship program, which relies on dedicated volunteers to help actively manage our open spaces.

Planning & Development Projects Underway or Recently Completed

  • Kent Memorial Park  (pdf) - Planning is underway for the play area renovation, including installation of a Wiffle┬« ball field.
  • Hogan Park at Russell Road - Construction has begun on the installation of synthetic turf on Field 1 at Hogan Park. This new surface will accommodate multiple sports year-round.

The Parks Planning & Development division helps create and implement the vision for Kent's parks, trails and open spaces. This includes acquiring new land to preserve for public use, as well as re-investment in the award-winning park and trail system we already have. We manage park and trail construction projects, play equipment replacement and other improvement efforts.
