Pinellas County Invites Participation in Online Recreation Survey

Pinellas County is asking its residents to complete an online survey by Friday, Aug. 17, to help determine who is using the parks, trails and recreational facilities throughout the county. The questions pertain to Pinellas County-owned parks, as well as those managed by the county’s municipalities.

The survey conducted and funded through a Communities Putting Prevention to Work grant, will help determine residents’ activity preferences and opinions on safety and cleanliness. The voluntary survey is anonymous and residents may skip any question they choose not to answer.

Results will be available at the end of September and will be used to facilitate discussion, provide feedback on concerns residents may have and to guide in improvement or expansion of the parks, trails and recreational facilities.

“Last year’s survey was useful in generating discussion about the use patterns, concerns and desires of park and trail users and helpful in planning improvements,” said Nancy Brown, volunteer program coordinator in Pinellas County Parks and Conservation Resources Department. Last year’s survey was conducted from September to November. “This survey will also give feedback regarding the initiatives, programs and projects that have already been implemented,” she said.
