Lynndale Park Recipient of Macy's "Heart Your Park" Fundraising Program

Lynndale Park has been selected for “Heart Your Park,” a program introduced as part of Macy’s “Secret Garden” campaign, that aims to raise awareness and dollars for local parks across the country. From March 7 to March 31, customers at Macy’s Lynnwood store can donate $1 or more at the register, with 100 percent of the donations benefiting Lynndale Park. To further spread the love, Macy’s will match the total customer donation across all stores, dollar for dollar, up to $250,000 in total.

Lynndale Park, Lynnwood's largest community park, is one of more than 550 parks nationwide that will benefit from Macy’s “Heart Your Park” this spring. In partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), the national non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of community parks, recreation and conservation, Macy’s stores across the country have each selected a local park or green space in their community to support through the program. Donations will go toward making improvements, such as maintaining trails, playgrounds, and ball fields, and everything in between.

“We are thrilled to partner with Macy’s and NRPA for ‘Heart Your Park’ this spring,” said Lynn Sordel, Parks, Recreation & Cultural Arts Director. “Through this wonderful program and donations by Macy’s customers, we are excited about the increased awareness and additional funding for Lynndale Park. This park is a great asset to the community, and we greatly appreciate Macy’s support.”
