Public invited to open houses for several new park projects

EVERETT—Snohomish County Parks & Recreation is developing concept plans for future projects at Martha Lake Airport Park, Martha Lake Park and Flowing Lake Park; and will hold an open house for all three projects to be held on Thursday, February 22, 2024, from 6:00-7:30 p.m. in the Chinook Room at the Northwest Stream Center located at 600 128th Street SE in Everett.

“We reviewed all of our park projects that are planned for the next six years in the Capital Improvement Program and looked at other priorities we heard through the Parks and Rec Vision Plan, our online Parks Suggestion Box, and the comprehensive planning process,” said Park Planning Supervisor Rachel Dotson. “These are the top projects identified as grant application opportunities. It is important for us to hear the community’s priorities which will guide us in what we include in the concept plans.”

Come and meet with park planners who will be collecting feedback and discussing details about the three park projects. Learn more on the project webpage: https://snocoparks.info/ConceptPlans

In spring 2024, Parks will work with the community to create a vision for the future of Martha Lake Park.

Potential elements include improved access from 164th St SW, updated play areas, dock renovations, and more.
