The Snohomish County executive John Lovick, council chair Stephanie Wright,  Lake Stickney Conservancy, elected officials and county parks advisory board invite you to celebrate the  opening of the Lake Stickney Community Park site.


Snohomish County Parks and the Lake Stickney Conservancy have hosted four volunteer clean-up and invasive species removal events with support from REI and Edmonds Community College. The community wants to keep the vast majority of the site as natural area with the additional amenities of soft-surface trails, picnic shelters, a small neighborhood off-leash area and a playground.


We appreciate the great neighbor/community partnerships and look forward to completing more park acquisitions and projects in 2014.
