Parks & Recreation Master Plan Survey: A survey has gone out to [all residents of Valdez] as part of our Master Planning process. Your survey submission helps us to understand the needs of our community. This is your opportunity to be heard and to weigh in on what is important to our community. We now have an online link! www.valdezparks.org/open. Surveys must be submitted by 3.13.2020. If you have any questions you may call our Administrative Office at (907) 835-2531.
The Parks and Recreation Commission acts as an advisory board to the City Council. Parks and Recreation Commission meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month at 7:00 pm in the Valdez City Council Chambers. The public is always welcome.
Parks and Recreation is an essential service that enhances the quality of life for the community of Valdez, its citizens, and visitors by promoting good personal health; providing opportunities to interact within families, work groups, and neighborhoods; serving as a stimulus for tourism; and fostering community pride.
