Happy New Year! 

Thanks for helping make 2014 a great year.

Thank you, volunteers and corporate sponsors, for your dedication to making Snohomish County's parks a beautiful place for everyone to enjoy. 


In 2014, your Snohomish County Parks system hosted nearly 5 million visitors and celebrated the opening of Lake Stickney and Miner's Corner county parks, and initiated the Pack-it-In/Pack-it-Out campaign to encourage our park users to take their recyclables and garbage home.

Improvements were made to the trails at Kayak Point county park, the Whitehorse Trail, Kayak Point Golf Course, the floating boardwalk at North Creek county park, the entry road to River Meadows county park, Squire Creek campground, Whitehorse community park and Backman county park.
The Conservation Futures Fund authorized the parks department to purchase several properties and add property to several parks, including Heybrook Ridge, Flowing Lake, Esperance, Lake Stickney and Steelhead county parks, O'Reilly Acres and Eastside Rail. We hope to have acquisitions completed by the end of 2015.

Over 43,000 volunteer hours were logged in 2014. Special volunteer efforts included cleanup days at Lake Stickney, Kayak Point, and Steelhead county parks as well as the Centennial Trail. Sundquist Homes sponsored the "Movies in the Park" series for the 8th year, along with BridgeCity Church who provided pre-movie entertainment and music.
Thrasher's Corner Sports Grill sponsored its 12th annual benefit golf tournament to fund youth activities, raising over $3,000. Willis Tucker Park also hosted the 4th annual Friday afternoon Farmer's Market and the National Night Out event in August.

We wish you joy and happiness in the new year and look forward to seeing you throughout 2015.
