Park Needs Assessment

Help us improve your park system and make your voice heard through the Park Needs Assessment!

Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces. Park Needs Assessment 2024
The Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department (PROS) is conducting a cyclical update to the park leisure interest survey. As part of this effort, we are hosting public park and programming needs assessment meetings that will continue to aid the County in taking a community-driven approach. This will improve the quality of life by helping to reach our goal of building a healthier, more aesthetically pleasing, and vibrant community. We encourage you, your family, and your friends to join an upcoming meeting in your area and give your ideas to improve parks and park programming. We also invite you to take our online survey. Please see below for more information.

Survey Instrument

As a part of this effort, the park needs assessment involves measuring usage, satisfaction, needs, unmet needs, priorities, and future trends. The purpose of this survey is to better understand the recreation and leisure activities that are most important to you and your household. The information provided will help guide future park needs and programming, as well as continue to develop your parks system guided by principles of equity, access, beauty, seamlessness, sustainability, and multiple benefits.
