2014 PROS 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 PROS Plan builds on the foundation created by the 2008 PROS Plan and covers the period from 2014 to 2030. 

The Pierce County Council adopted the 2014 PROS Plan on February 18th, 2014 through Ordinance 2014-03.
