Parks & Recreation Survey Now Open to All!

Posted on September 26, 2019 at 2:46 PM by Melissa Goff

Residents Encouraged to Participate!

The Park, Recreation and Athletic Fields survey is now open to all residents and available at! If you have received a copy of the survey, please return it via mail or use the URL and code specified in the letter.  The survey is the same, but the results will be reported separately.  The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. 

Why should I take the survey?  The Town of Brookline has commissioned a Parks and Recreation community survey as part of an effort to update the Town’s Parks, Recreation and Open Space Strategic Master Plan that will be utilized by the Town to guide planning, facility development, programs and services for the next 5 to 20 years.  The results of this survey will provide critical information in determining community values, satisfaction levels, needs and priorities, and demographics for the Town’s long-term planning efforts. The Town is looking for input regarding what types of programs, facilities, and services residents want in their parks and recreation system and where priorities should be placed.

This project is led by GreenPlay, LLC, with survey and data work done by RRC Associates.  A total of 4,000 households in Brookline have been mailed a survey and responses from these residents will comprise the statistically-valid sample. If you did not receive a survey, we also want to hear your responses! The survey is open to the entire community on a separate link: We estimate that the survey will remain open until October 11,, 2019.

For additional information, please contact the Town’s Senior Landscape Architect, Scott W. Landgren, at (617) 264-6490.
