Shakespeare in the Park
7pm | Lynndale Park Amphitheater
We had a very successful 2016 season, and we look forward to next summer.
Pack some snacks, bring a blanket and head on down to Lynndale Park (18927 72nd Ave W, Lynnwood) for an evening of Shakespeare performed by professional theatre troupes Wooden O Theatre and GreenStage. Perfect for the whole family - rain or shine! All performances begin at 7pm and are free (suggested donation $5).
The City of Lynnwood Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department thanks our partners: GreenStage, and the Seattle Shakespeare Company.
Visit the Shakespeare in the Park webpage for the 2016 schedule.

News (Summer 2016):
Our new artwork was created by 6th grade students at Cedar Valley Community School. They worked with artist Amaranta Ibarra, and created art based on nature. Their artwork forms the designs that wrap the traffic signal boxes at 196th and Scriber Lake Rd.
Enjoy our newest art program, the Latino Art Club. Open to all K-8th grade students, this free Saturday morning art club meets weekly through June to explore and create traditional Latino art forms. Click here for more details.
