McCollum Park is a 78-acre family-oriented park that has a rich combination of natural habitats and supports a wide variety of both active and passive recreation opportunities. The nature trails, ball fields, and walking path (1/2 mile oval) make this park a wonderful destination for park users, and families, as well as for organized activities and events. Its presence serves as a living memorial to the original pioneers who settled in this area. The McCollum Park BMX Bicycle Association races at the park’s BMX track. The Northwest Stream Center and Adopt-A-Stream Foundation Center are located here. The Northwest Stream Center offers room rentals, an interpretive boardwalk, and a variety of educational programs.
Located next to the McCollum Park - Park & Ride with transit connections throughout the region.

The area surrounding the park was at one time known as Emander. A group of individuals called the Pioneers of Emander were involved in the early improvements of the park.
The Snohomish County Food and Farming Center is planned to be built at McCollum Park. The Snohomish County Food and Farming Center will include a year-round indoor farmers market, a commercial kitchen and a processing, aggregation and distribution center for local farm products.
McCollum Park Pool - Permanently Closed
McCollum Park has been selected as the best County/publicly owned site to develop the new Snohomish County Food & Farming Center. The new facility will likely be in the location of the McCollum Park pool. The decision to permanently close the pool was based on the critical need for this facility to support farmers across the region as well as the high cost of repairing the pool. As a 50-year-old facility, the pool would have needed $7 million in repairs to continue operating. This was too high of expenditure for an outdoor pool with only 3 months of operation a year and considering all the existing improvement needs across the County’s 12,000-acre park system.
We understand that many families and members of the community may be disappointed the pool has closed permanently. We are grateful we were able to provide this community resource to Snohomish County for so long, and we look forward to serving the community in a different way with the Snohomish County Food and Farming Center. This vital resource will directly support local farmers, strengthen food systems and address food insecurity.
