Parks and Recreation

The Sammamish Parks and Recreation Department provides opportunities to safely play, gather, and learn at public parks, park facilities, and natural areas, as well as through recreational classes, activities, and events.

The Parks and Recreation Department provides these opportunities through responsible resource management and environmental stewardship in an effort to build and enhance the Sammamish community for all.

Trail, Bikeway & Paths Master Plan

This comprehensive planning document addresses a 20-year vision for development of recreational trails and non-motorized transportation facilities within the city.
