Corcoran Memorial Park


Corcoran Memorial Park will be a neighborhood park in Bothell. It will have a playground, Off-Leash Dog Area, parking and picnic area for visitors and community members to enjoy for generations. Mr. Corcoran donated 3.43 acres for the park requesting an emphasis on character and physical development for youth.


On September 11, 2019, James W. Corcoran donated 3.43 acres of land he owned to the Snohomish County Parks & Recreation Division. The land is valued at $1,573,800 making it one of the highest valued land donations in the department’s 57 year history. The property will be known as the Corcoran Memorial Park in memory of Mr. Corcoran’s younger brother who died in 1970 shortly after serving in Vietnam with the 82nd Airborne Division; his nephew who perished in the SR 530 mudslide in 2014 as well as honoring the memory of other loved ones lost in a plane crash in 1960 while serving in the Navy.
