In 2012, Frederick County Parks and Recreation created a Strategic Plan to guide the department in the years to come. The 2012 Community Survey shows FCPRD as most cited provider of parks and recreation services with six out of ten Frederick County households having used a FCPRD facility or program in the past year. Survey results indicate the following findings with relevance to the strategic direction of the department:
  • Multi-use trails are the overwhelming facility interest/need
  • Adult Fitness is the overwhelming recreation programming interest/need
  • Print mediums are the preferred communication method

Additionally the primary benefits households feel FCPRD contributes to include:
  • Making Frederick County more desirable
  • Improving health and fitness
  • Improved quality of life
  • Providing alternatives for youth
  • Preserving open space
