Project Overview

To improve and expand Metropolitan Regional Parks and Trails

The Metropolitan Regional Park System is owned and operated by 10 implementing agencies across the 7-county metro area. This system hosts nearly 50 million visitors annually. This project, if funded, would be matched with $10 million in local bonds.

$10 million was funded for this project in 2018. This request represents the remaining, unfunded need. See details on the 2018 funding.
