County will contribute to City Park upgrades
Edmonds is among seven cities that will benefit from a total of $460,000 in Snohomish County funds to upgrade local parks. Improvements range from trails to gazebos to lighting.
The cities – Edmonds, Arlington, Everett, Lynnwood, Marysville, Mountlake Terrace and Mukilteo – collectively invested $4 million in park projects. The county’s 2013 REET II bond funding package provided the additional funds to improve nine local parks.
Edmonds will receive $80,000 for a playground, splash pad and ADA upgrades at City Park.
“It’s important that children in Snohomish County have a safe place to play,” said Snohomish County Executive John Lovick.
“New playground equipment, trails, benches and lighting make parks inviting to children and provide greater opportunities for adults to enjoy the natural beauty we have here in Snohomish County.”
