Haller Splash Pad Groundbreaking 

City leaders, the Stillaguamish Tribe, and the Rotary Club of Arlington joined together Wednesday morning to break ground for the Splash Pad at Haller Park. 

We are extremely fortunate that the design and construction of the Splash Pad project is completely is funded by grants and community donations.  No City funds are being used to construct the pad. The City extends its sincere gratitude to the Stillaguamish Tribe, the Rotary Club of Arlington, the State of Washington Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO), and the great citizens of Arlington who have supported community efforts to raise the funds for this project to provide a safe place for kids to play without entering the river.

$525,000 Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians
$127,000  Rotary and Friends of the Splash Pad
$500,000 State of Washington RCO Grant

Reece Construction anticipates beginning work on the project in fall, with a completion date of March 31, 2019.

Please call Sarah Lopez, Community Revitalization Project Manager, at 360-403-3448, if you have any questions on the project.  
Information on the Splash Pad and all other City projects is available on our website

Help Improve Legal Services for Service Members and Veterans

The Attorney General's Office is currently conducting a survey to learn more about the legal needs of Washington State's military service members and veterans.

The Attorney General's Office is collecting this information to better understand the volume and types of legal issues faced by military service members and veterans. The information collected will be used by the Attorney General's Office and others to improve access to civil legal assistance and pro bono services.

If you have ever served in any branch of the Armed Forces, as an active duty member or in the National Guard or Reserves, your feedback will help guide legal services to where they are needed most.

The survey does not ask for any personal identifying information. The results will be compiled in a report to be released later this year.

The survey is scheduled to be open until August 17, 2018. Have your voice heard and take the survey online at

Please contact the Attorney General's Office at with questions or to request the survey in an alternative format.
