New Cost Recovery at Gissberg Twin Lakes and Twin Rivers Parks
New $5 day use parking fee goes in effect June 15 through Labor Day
EVERETT, Wash., May 10, 2019 – A new day use parking fee of just five dollars will go in effect beginning June 15, 2019 and run through Labor Day 2019 at Snohomish County’s Gissberg Twin Lakes and Twin Rivers Parks. This new fee will aid in needed park operational and ranger support costs helping to maintain the impeccable quality of Snohomish County Parks.
A $10 day use fee is already collected at five other boat launch, water access and camping parks. Annual parking passes can also be purchased for $75 and used in all county parks with a parking fee: Flowing Lake, Kayak Point, River Meadows, Twin Rivers, Twin Lakes, Wenberg, and Wyatt Parks. The annual pass is valid one year from the date of purchase and is not valid for overnight parking.
Beautiful park properties require exceptional care and maintenance to keep them lovely and open for all to enjoy for years to come. Parks staff and the Snohomish County Parks Board carefully considered and thoroughly explored options around the new day use fee for Twin Lakes and Twin Rivers County Parks before making their final decision that the fee was needed.
Infractions of $100 will be given to vehicles without a parking pass where a pass is required. More information about passes can be found online at SnoCoParks.org
