The Snohomish County Parks & Recreation Department has over 12,000 acres, spread out over 121 park properties with 34 miles of fresh and saltwater shorelines. We are the largest land steward in the county and our parks, trails and open spaces contribute to the clean water, clean air, healthy forests and the great beaches our residents and visitors enjoy. 

We’re working behind the scenes making sure your favorite neighborhood park, wooded trail, sandy shoreline, community class, and heritage sites are clean, safe and open and accessible to everyone. And we’re in it for the long haul. We find ways to innovatively steward and preserve your public lands and resources to keep the wellbeing and positive community-building of parks open to you and future generations. Because your parks story matters to us. The next generation’s parks story matters to us. Now get out there and live it.
