Thank you for your continued interest in the Aberdeen Recreational Trails Plan Update! The final plan was presented to the Aberdeen Park Board on August 7th and to the Aberdeen City Council on August 26, 2019. Both governing entities voted to unanimously accept the plan and the final report is now available for use and reference by local entities.


A copy of the final plan has been provided on this website and is the culmination of many months of hard work and much feedback from residents throughout the area. We appreciate your interest in the plan and look forward to seeing the continued growth of the trail system throughout the Aberdeen community!


If you have specific interest, regarding how you may continue to support the efforts of this plan, please contact Doug Johnson, Director of the Aberdeen Parks and Recreation Department or Lynn Lander, City Manager with the City of Aberdeen


Thank You!

Participate in the Project

Are you interested in getting involved in the project? Check out the calendar of events! We have also included information about our project schedule, including upcoming study advisory team meetings and drafting the plan. 

The planning team recently met with members of the Study Advisory Team to review the revised trail network and encouragement and education strategies. You can view the presentation from the meeting on the documents page of this site.


The second public meeting for the recreational trails plan was held on Tuesday evening, April 30th (5:00-8:00pm) in the Eagle’s Nest at the ARCC. The design team visited with members of the community to review a draft of the trail plan and listen to feedback. Input received from this meeting, will be added to the trail plan as the final draft is developed over the coming months.


The current draft of the trail plan, and related materials, has been uploaded to this website. Additionally, presentation materials will be uploaded to the project website over the coming days.


Thank you for your continued interest in the plan!
