Reston Association is seeking member feedback on its parks and recreation offerings.

The online survey, which begins on May 1 and continues through June 30, will help guide the association’s 10-year parks and recreation plan.

Marketing firm The Noise Doctors, Inc. was hired to get information on how RA’s parks and recreational facilities and programs are currently used, future uses, and possible new facilities and programs for the future.

This will be the association’s first 10-year parks and recreation plan, according to RA spokesperson Mike Leone.

“A planning process is conducted every 10 years to ensure that our parks and recreational facilities and programs are optimally meeting both the current and future needs of our residents,” RA said in a recent newsletter.

RA says that the survey will provide the foundation for its planning process.

The survey will be released at the end of the month and will be accessible online. It will be anonymous and take roughly 15 minutes to complete.

RA manages 55 miles of paved pathways and natural surface trails, along with with other amenities like soccer fields, pools, tennis and pickle ball courts. In recent years, a comprehensive effort has been underway to manage aging facilities and infrastructure while balancing future needs.
