Located just 1/2 mile east of I-5 on 128th St SE, and adjacent to the McCollum Park-And-Ride, this 78 acre park combines open space, wetlands, and woodlands that provide numerous active and passive recreation opportunities. Its nature trails, ball fields, outdoor pool, walking path (1/2 mile* oval), picnic shelter, and BMX track make this park a natural destination for individual outings as well as large-scale organized activities.
On the south of the park side is the former Parks Department administrative headquarters, which now houses the Washington State University Extension Center and the Adopt-A-Stream's Northwest Stream Center facility. The NW Stream Center offers room rentals, an interpretive boardwalk, and a variety of educational programs.
The area surrounding the park was at one time known as Emander. A group of individuals called the Pioneers of Emander were involved in the early improvements of the park; most notably the design, funding, and construction of the picnics shelter.
