CR C&R 2.1 - Develop recreation and cultural programs that are diverse, inclusive and accessible, and that also drive attendance and cost recovery.

Trained Observer Program – Percentage of Parks and Rec Fac Grounds Ratings With No Problems

  • This measure is tracked for two quarters annually during the growing season.
  • The Parks average rating met the overall target of 85% "No Problems", but the Recreation facility grounds rating is still below the 85% "No Problem" rating. Difficulties with hiring hourly workers significantly impacted cleanliness of facilities, weed control, and maintaining flower/shrub beds.     

Natural Areas Programs - Cumulative Participation per Capita

This is a quarterly metric.

The Natural Areas Department provided engagement activities for 4,347 participants in Q3 of 2021, almost a 42% increase above target. Staff and volunteers were able to increase the Natural Areas presence at events like the Poudre River Festival and Kids in the Park, in addition to offering Trailhead Tabling at the recently reopened Bobcat Ridge Natural Area.

% of citizens responding very good/good - Quality of arts and cultural opportunities in Fort Collins
  • This is an annual metric and is displaying 2019 data.  The survey was not done in 2020, so that year has been removed from the chart.
  • The Cultural Services Department strives to develop programs and activities that support and encourage participation of all ages in arts and culture in our facilities and throughout the community.
Recreation participant survey satisfaction

Participants reporting "Satisfied" or "Very Satisfied" improved slightly during this period, and is 1% below target. Staff shortages continue to impact standard customer service levels.
