Parks and Recreation Event Survey

The County is conducting this survey to get a better understanding of community needs in respect to recreation and leisure activities.  The information gathered will help us develop a long-term strategy to support and develop social, recreation and cultural opportunities accessible to all. Leisure activities, facilities, parks and green spaces are essential to our quality of life and to the environment.

By completing this survey, you will be entered into a draw to win, giving you a chance to win a Passaic County prize pack.

Thank you for participating in our survey. Your feedback is important!

Throughout the questionnaire you will see questions regarding “classes” and “events”. 

  • “Classes” refer to instructional/ learning opportunities that will normally include more than one occurrence (i.e. sports clinics, cooking lessons, exercise classes, etc.)
  • “Events” refer to larger outings that will usually occur as a one-off (i.e. Passaic County Fair, Movie Nights, sports camps/ tournaments, etc.)
