South Lynnwood Park

On sunny afternoons, neighbors gather around picnic tables and children play on a dynamic playground beneath a vibrant mural. This is South Lynnwood Park: the only park in the historically underserved South Lynnwood neighborhood. Until Trust for Public Land’s help, the park had not received renovations in over forty years. But with support from TPL and our partners, the space has been thoughtfully designed and remodeled with the community’s needs and wants in mind. Now, the flourishing park includes pickleball courts, a nature-inspired playground, better access for people using mobility devices, and a beautiful mural painted by a local artist who worked with fifth graders to create the mural’s theme and design. The mural is inspired by the concept of people as stewards of the land—a principle held by the Snohomish Tribe and Coast Salish peoples who first cared for the land.

Parks offer places to play, exercise, unplug, and connect with neighbors, which has a direct impact on our personal health and well-being. With more than 2,000 residents within a 10-minute walk of the park and thousands more who visit the park along the Interurban Trail, South Lynnwood Park serves as an essential space for this diverse community, connecting more people to the joys and benefits of the outdoors.
