Snohomish County Parks and Recreation is in the process of re-designing the park set forth by the 2005 Brightwater Mitigation Agreement and other program elements through input from public meetings and an Ad Hoc Committee comprised of an equitable number of neighbors, stakeholder/user groups and county park staff.
Centennial Trail South
This project will extend the current Centennial Trail from the City of Snohomish south to Woodinville in King County. This 12-mile trail corridor will complete the Centennial Trail through Snohomish County, from the Skagit County line to the King County line and will eventually connect to the King County trail system further south.

On September 11, 2019, James W. Corcoran donated 3.43 acres of land he owned to the Snohomish County Parks, Recreation & Tourism Department. The land is valued at $1,573,800 making it one of the highest valued land donations in the department’s 57 year history. It will have a playground, Off-Leash Dog Area, parking and picnic area for visitors and community members to enjoy for generations. Mr. Corcoran donated 3.43 acres for the park requesting an emphasis on character and physical development for youth.
Food and Farming Center
The Snohomish County Food and Farming Center will be a resource for fruit and vegetable farmers in Snohomish, Whatcom, Skagit, and King counties. Farmers will have access to equipment and infrastructure for the processing, aggregation, distribution, value-added production, direct and wholesale sales of locally produced agricultural products! The center will be accompanied by a commercial kitchen to facilitate value-added production.
Forsgren Park Playground Renovation Project
Forsgren Park is a neighborhood park located in Bothell offering two soccer fields, two little league baseball diamonds, and a playground. This project will focus on renovating the playground, which needs replacement.
Snohomish County Parks and Recreation is working closely with the Friends of Heybrook Ridge to develop and maintain this 143-acre property. The park will be developed for the purposes of forest protection, environmental education and passive recreation.
Kayak Point Park Day-Use Improvement Project
Snohomish County is working to renovate the day-use portion of this popular, well-loved park. An extensive design process has been ongoing for several years for reconfiguring the day-use area. The proposed design will provide additional recreation space, move parking away from the shoreline, improve the boat launch and make habitat improvements. As part of implementing these changes, park infrastructure will be replaced (e.g. failing water lines and buckling asphalt) and the park will be positioned for many more years of enjoyment.
Lord Hill Regional Park Preferred Plan Process
Snohomish County Parks is resuming the Preferred Plan process for Lord Hill Regional Park which will establish an official trail plan and include options for future development such as expanded parking solutions and focused equestrian and mountain bike use areas.
Meadowdale Beach Park and Estuary Restoration Project
This project will restore a historic (pre-railroad) 1.3-acre estuary that will provide essential rearing habitat for ESA-listed Chinook (threatened), Chum, and Coho salmon as well as Cutthroat trout; and restore nearshore processes key to Puget Sound recovery.
Sky Valley Sportsman's Park
Sky Valley Sportsman's Park is an undeveloped, DNR owned piece of property in east Snohomish County near the City of Sultan, just off of the Sultan Basin Road. The property is approximately 146 acres fronting on the Sultan Basin Road and surrounded by Department of Natural Resources Land. This park is intended to be developed into a multi-purpose shooting and archery range and will be managed through a public-private or public-nonprofit partnership.
Snohomish River Trail: Phase 1 (Everett – Snohomish)
Snohomish County Parks, in partnership with the City of Everett, is planning to develop the Snohomish River Trail, a new regional trail, eventually planned to connect the City of Everett to the City of Monroe. Phase 1 of this project will connect the City of Everett to the City of Snohomish. This approximately 5.5-mile regional trail link will provide a critical east-west link between the future Centennial Trail South extension to the east and the Everett trail system and the Interurban Trail to the west.
SR 530 Slide Memorial
Snohomish County Parks and Recreation is in the process of developing a permanent memorial to honor the victims, survivors, and responders of the tragic landslide that occurred at the site on March 22, 2014. Staff members worked with the families of victims and survivors over the last few years to develop a meaningful concept and design for the memorial.
Thomas' Eddy Restoration Project
The County’s work at Thomas’ Eddy proposes to reconnect the Snohomish River to the floodplain around Bob Heirman Wildlife Park, and improve or maintain opportunities for fishing, hiking and wildlife viewing while restoring critical habitat for wildlife and threatened salmon species. To ensure these goals are met, Snohomish County is soliciting early input on project design from the public and park users.
Trafton Floodplain Restoration
Snohomish County Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) and the Stillaguamish Tribe are partnering on a floodplain restoration project at Trafton. This project is connected to a larger effort by the Tribe to restore reach-scale river processes and salmon habitat on the lands they own at Trafton. The Whitehorse Trail, which runs adjacent to the project area, will also be protected from future erosion and avulsion impacts.

The back county corridor, rewards visitors with picturesque, landscape views of forests, farmland, streams and rivers, and mountain vistas.
