Parks, Recreation and Open Space Plan
Pierce County’s Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan contains a long-term vision for the Pierce County parks system and proposes improvements to the parks system based on that vision.

The total cost to complete all of the projects in the PROS Plan is $360 million. Park revenues for capital projects over the next 6 years are only $7.6 million. At this rate, it would take over 145 years to complete the system at current revenue levels.
