In Spring of 2021, the Town of La Conner acquired a new park on Maple Street. Its current use has been open space. In late Summer of 2021, The Town of La Conner’s Parks Commission conducted a survey of the residents of the Town and of Shelter Bay, who are likely users of the park. The survey was available by way of both the Town’s September 2021 water bill and online.
We received 358 surveys back. 54% of the respondents preferred to keep the park in open space and 39% preferred at least part of the park in open space. Respondents wanted some benches, a few trees, a small play area/free play area and a water fountain.
This information will be used to guide the future design and for procuring grants to fund improvements on the park.
