Mission Statement

Seattle Parks and Recreation provides welcoming and safe opportunities to play, learn, contemplate and build community, and promotes responsible stewardship of the land. We promote healthy people, a healthy environment, and strong communities. Seattle Parks and Recreation manages a 6,200-acre park system of 400+ parks and extensive natural areas. Parks provides athletic fields, tennis courts, play areas, specialty gardens, and more than 25 miles of boulevards and more than 120 miles of trails. The system comprises about 11% of the City's land area. Parks also manages many facilities, including 26 community centers, ten swimming pools (two outdoor and eight indoor), four environmental learning centers, two small craft centers, four golf courses, an outdoor stadium, and much more.


Seattle Parks and Recreation's Environmental Education and Outdoor Learning Unit provides outdoor recreation and education opportunities for all of Seattle's residents. We provide nature education to public and private school students, nature walks to the general public, and walks for our youngest environmental learners. We utilize city parks and our Environmental Learning Centers throughout the city,
