North City Water District
1519 NE 177th St

On the Future of Shoreline’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services

The North City Neighborhood Association invites you to a presentation and discussion of future directions for Shoreline’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services.

The Shoreline Parks, Recreation and Cultural Service (PRCS) Department has begun an eighteen month planning process to update the PROS Plan, a document that creates a 20-year vision and serves as the framework for Shoreline’s recreation and cultural programs and park and open space facilities.

At our meeting, City staff will be on hand to provide a look at the past and discuss and listen to your input on future directions. What do you want your parks, recreation, and cultural services system to be, and what are you willing to support?

The meeting will start with a brief introduction on the North City Neighborhood Association — who we are, and what our plans are. The presentation by PRCS and discussion on the future of Shoreline’s parks will follow.


Please join us!

  • Meet your neighbors
  • Share ideas and concerns
  • Learn bout the North City Summer Picnic!
