The City's Parks, Recreation, and Open Space (PROS) Plan establishes a road map for providing high quality, community-driven parks, trails, natural areas and recreation services throughout Covington. The PROS Plan was adopted in 2010 and is being updated this year.

Citizen input is absolutely crucial to ensure program goals and priorities are consistent with community needs and interests. Several opportunities for participation are planned, including a survey, public meetings and community stakeholder discussions.
