Parks and Recreation ADA

Help make Redmond’s Parks and Trails Accessible for All

The City of Redmond’s Parks Department is developing an ADA (Americans With Disabilities Act) Transition plan. The City recently completed audits at all 47 parks and 39 miles of trails within Redmond and has:

  • Identified barriers to access such as parking, playgrounds and sports courts that are not accessible.
  • Developed priorities
  • Drafted a schedule to remove those barriers

In the next 9-12 years the City will prioritize work to make accessible five more playgrounds, three more tennis courts, six ballfields, three picnic areas/shelters along with additional improvements to overall access. The community feedback has indicated that priorities for these improvements should be focused in parks that have the most visitors, that are spread throughout the City and sites with unique features like the beach in Idylwood or the barns at Farrel-McWhirter Park. In addition, improving parking, accessible routes, restrooms and trails were key concerns. Over time, all parks will become accessible as they are upgraded to the most up-to-date standards.

Please let us know if you agree with these priorities by filling out a short questionnaire below. Your voice will help the City of Redmond make sure its programs and activities are accessible for all members of the community and make it easier for everyone to take advantage of Redmond’s beautiful parks and recreation opportunities.
