Call for New Trails in Clark County Parks

Posted by Ryan Ojerio at Feb 26, 2015 02:20 PM |

If you'd like to see more local hiking and walking trails in Clark County, here are two easy ways to tell the county and its Parks Advisory Board how you feel in an online survey or in person.

Clark County residents, would you like more hiking and walking trails like the Camas Lily field at Lacamas Park, the Cedar Loop at Whipple Creek, or the new Vancouver Lake trail being built by WTA volunteers?

The Clark County and the Parks Advisory Board are working together to update the long range plan that would guide the purchase of land for parks, trails and other recreation facilities. Your input will help shape the plans priorities.

Make your voice count by taking the parks survey, writing a letter or attending one of the open houses below.

A pen and Pulaski: they both help build trails

Join WTA in advocating for access to high quality trails that connect people of all ages and abilities to the natural world; trails that offer opportunities exercise, relaxation and active transportation. The pen and keyboard can be just as mighty as the shovel and Pulaski when it comes to building new trails, so speak up in the survey or with a letter!

County residents can participate by taking an online community survey that will help set priorities and determine how limited resources are spent. The survey takes only about 5 minutes to complete.

Attend an open house

In addition, three open houses have been scheduled on the long-range parks plan:

  • 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, March 3
