Tambark Creek Park is a 40-acre park near the City of Mill Creek that has open fields, woodlands and wetlands with features that include restrooms (closed and winterized November-March), sports fields, picnic shelters and an off-leash dog 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. In 2005, funding was allocated for the development of the site through a mitigation agreement with King County for the construction of the Brightwater treatment plant. The park opened on June 28, 2013.

 Driving Directions

There are two entrances to the park. Use the west entrance for the playground and off-leash dog area and the east entrance to access the athletic field.

From SR-527 (Bothell-Everett Hwy) head east on 180th Street Southeast. Turn left (north) onto 35th Street Southeast and proceed approximately one-tenth of a mile (the park is on the right). There are approximately 50 parking stalls. THIS LOT CLOSES AT DUSK. Vehicles parked here for sport field events that extend past dusk may be locked-in for the night.
