Five Year Comprehensive Plan: 
The City of Pullman, Parks & Recreation Comprehensive Plan is intended to lay the groundwork for the future of the city park and recreation system. The plan is designed to supplement the Parks, Recreation, and Open Space element of the City’s Comprehensive Plan. It expands on the information contained in the “1999 Comprehensive Plan” and “2018 Comprehensive Plan Update: Existing Conditions and Future Forecast, Final Technical Memorandum” by providing significantly greater detail regarding the inventory of parks and recreation activities and facilities. This plan inventories existing parks and identifies future park and recreation needs, explores park rehabilitation issues, outlines parks, facilities, and recreation management and operations, discusses recreation program and services issues, and identifies parks, facilities, recreation, and open space goals and objectives.
DRAFT ADA Transition Plan documents

The City of Pullman, Parks & Recreation Plan establishes a process that guides the management and development of recreational services, parks, trails, squares and triangles, and other open spaces. This plan serves to unite the system into a coordinated network that reflects the needs and recommended priorities for the benefit of both the city residents and the many visitors over the next 5-20 years. Copies of the official Five-Year Plans can be found on the Department Information page.

Completed Projects:

marys_park1Mary's Park Improvements
The creation of an all-inclusive (ADA) playground is finished. The parking lot has been paved, and the picnic shelter has been placed along with picnic tables. The ADA family restroom structure is set to be placed later this fall. The park would also include a wetlands mitigation interpretive area, a children’s garden, and a demonstration garden. 
The complete ADA playground equipment for Mary's Park was received in March of 2019 and the site preparations started to take shape in July 2019. The train playground structure has been assembled and placed at Mary's Park, while the second piece of equipment, a forest structure, will be placed in the spring of 2020. Then a soft ground covering will be placed under both structures in 2020 as well and all the finishing touches on the playground design will wrap up in the fall of 2020. The funds for Mary's Park have come from a combination of bond money and the $25,000 donation from the local Kiwanis Club. The Kiwanis Club is also pledging to match donations for Mary's Park for up to $5,000.00. Thank you for your generous support!

PA Itani Liner Park pathway PA Itani Park
Pedestrian/Bike Path Development
The bike path development project started by paving the Itani Linear Path from Center St. to the Sunnyside Park Shelter and the Cedar St. parking lot. The goal is to create a path from Copper Basin Development, through the Conservation Park, to Darrow St., and on to Harrison St. Plan and develop sections of the trails to the new Kamiak Elementary School as development occurs. Funds for this project are provided through the bond.

Reaney Park Pool Improvements
In the Spring of 2020, the pool liner at Reaney Park Pool was replaced. The money to complete this project was taken from bond funds.
The interior and exterior restrooms and changing rooms have not been updated since the early 1960s. Renovation and improvements to the shower building were identified as a high priority in the City’s revised ADA Transition Plan. Presently, handicap porta-pots must be leased as park restrooms do not meet ADA Standards. The new proposed layout would include toilets, sinks, and shower replacements. d63c4173-4c0d-4171-bac2-ee950b3bdc90 - Copy

PA City Playfields Fall 2018City Playfield Upgrades
The proposed plan was to add 6 new dugout structures to Wiley, Bowman, and Thatuna fields. We are also replacing and upgrading the existing storage and 3 scorekeeper boxes. There are 3 backstops and fencing that are being replaced as well. The project also includes adding an adult fitness component along the pedestrian path. Funds for these projects will be taken from the bond. Pictures of the current project progress can be found in the gallery.

Kruegel RoofKruegel Park Shelter Replacement
The original shelter was constructed by the Lions Club over 40 years ago. Roof repairs were carried out by Parks staff and Real Life Ministries volunteers several years ago to extend its safe use. A new structure similar to those at Sunnyside and Terre View Parks is being proposed. We would also like to add ADA route improvements from the parking area to the shelter and the restrooms. Funds for this project are being taken from the bond funds.

Sunrise Park Improvements
A small picnic shelter and picnic tables were installed this past summer/fall 2023.
