Lake Stickney

Project Description:

Snohomish County Parks & Recreation has developed a Master Plan for Lake Stickney Park. The plan will guide development of new recreation opportunities, improve site access and ensure long term protection for critical habitat areas. Initial community input was gathered through multiple community group meetings including public meetings held on April 21, 2014 and June 16, 2014. Ideas for park improvement generated by community input and preliminary design work include:

  • New accessible walking path network
  • Lake viewing mound
  • Multi-purpose lawn / open space
  • Picnic areas
  • Integrated nature themed play elements
  • Environmental education opportunities & signage
  • Wetland boardwalks
  • Parking lot enhancements
  • Stormwater infrastructure improvements
  • Wetland & habitat enhancement

Upon adoption of the Master Plan, Parks will begin design development, permitting and implementation of planned improvements. Improvements will likely be completed in phases based on funding availability and additional community input.

All acquisitions, plans and site developments are subject to funding availability and subject to Snohomish County Executive and County Council approval.

Upcoming Meetings:
  • Community Meeting - Meeting will be scheduled Late Spring/Early Summer 2016 to present study findings and receive comment on preliminary design drawings
