***NOTICE*** 

9/16/21: The zipline at Esperance Park is temporarily closed due to damage until further notice. The seat of the cable used to move across the zipline was damaged due to improper use. We have removed the seat and cable and have ordered a replacement from the manufacturer. Due to worldwide supply chain delays, we are still awaiting the part. We apologize for the inconvenience and will repair the zipline as soon as possible.


About

Esperance Park is a 9.6 acre community park with athletic fields, sport court, Off Leash Dog Area (OLDA), playground and a Zip Line! Second growth forest with primitive trails covers the northwest corner of the park. Athletic fields include a little league baseball diamond and two practice areas for field sports.



Park History


The Esperance Park property was formerly owned by the Edmonds school district.  In the late 1980’s the land was to be surplussed and sold for housing development.  A community activist group, The Action Council for Esperance (ACE), successfully petitioned the County to acquire the site for a community park.   Renovations and upgrades to the baseball field area were completed 2009.
 
 In 2016 the adjacent 3.4 acre parcel was purchased from the Edmonds school district and a  significant renovation of the park was completed May 2020.  This included new accessible walking path network, off-leash dog area, parking lot playground replacement sport court and gathering space, a new  community garden and pea patch, forest playground, and trail enhancements.
