Snohomish County is working to renovate the day-use portion of this popular, well loved park. An extensive design process was undertaken several years ago to develop a plan for reconfiguring the day-use area, which 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.
