Map of Park
Tambark Park is a 40 acre blend of open fields, woodlands, and wetlands, with features that include restrooms, sports field, picnic shelters, and off-leash area.

Park History
The Tambark Creek Community Park site was acquired in 1995 / 1996 through a joint agreement between the City of Mill Creek and Snohomish County. This partnership was created in order to meet the park needs of the local community by providing a facility that would provide active sports fields as well as other park features. The park opened June 28, 2013. In 2005, funding was allocated for development of the site through a mitigation agreement with King County for construction of the Brightwater treatment plant. Tambark Creek Park Community Pedestrian Improvements
