The purpose of the community needs assessment survey was to gather community feedback on Kirkland parks, recreation facilities, amenities, future planning, communication and more. In September 2021, GreenPlay LLC in conjunction with RRC Associates mailed 4,864 postcards and 4,822 statistically valid surveys to Kirkland community members to get the needs and opinions of both non-users and users of parks, recreation facilities, and programs in the community. A total of 656 invitation surveys were completed with a /- 3.8% Margin of Error.
A follow-up "open link" survey where the rest of the community was encouraged to respond was made available to the entire community in October 2021. A total of 2,345 open link surveys were completed by community members. This survey research effort and subsequent analysis were designed to assist in the development of a PROS Plan that reflects the community's needs and desires.
