Shelton parks survey

Children swing at Kneeland Park in Shelton.

SHELTON — Shelton Parks and Recreation Department is working to develop a new master Parks, Recreation, Open Space and Trails plan for the City of Shelton. The new plan will replace the 2008 Comprehensive Parks Plan and the 2013 Community Trails Plan with a single guiding document for the development of parks and recreation services for the next 10 years.

City residents, patrons, and interested stakeholders are invited to share their insights for shaping the city’s future parks, programs, and recreational facilities by completing two community surveys posted on the Shelton Parks & Recreation webpage.

Survey 1 is designed to gather valuable insights on how the Parks & Recreation Department can best serve the community. Survey 2 is an opportunity to identify where specific opportunities and challenges exist within the City of Shelton, and what you think the city should do about it.

"We believe that an inclusive planning process is vital to the success of any effort to provide recreation opportunities and outdoor amenities within our community," the city said in a news release. "Planning that engages people, supporters and opponents alike, will help ensure that the right actions are taken for the right reasons at the right time."

The two survey's can be found online at
