Tell Us What You Think

We are asking community members what kinds of improvements would make Lynnwood's parks more welcoming, inclusive, environmentally resilient and support better health to help us identify and prioritize capital projects for the next ten years. So, we want to know:

What makes a park feel welcoming to you? 

How can parks support your health?

What environmental issues matter most to you?

What park improvements would make our parks more useable for people of all ages and abilities?

    I would like to see some improvements made to North Lynnwood Park. This park is used daily by so many community members (I would guess it averages over 100 daily users, especially on weekends and summer days). I walk my dogs there daily and also bring my two kids there to play at least 3-4 times per week. I would advocate for investment made to the south side of the park where there used to be a wading pool and now there is a climbing rock only with the wading pool area as mostly unused space. There could be a skate park added, or an additional climbing structure for kids, or another shelter that families can use for events. I propose to keep the climbing rock, as kids love it, but add something more useful to the area. Also, there could be additional trees planted in that area, as families often seek the shelter of the trees in the summer. There are so many options to make better use of that space!

    Parks are good but right now transients should be number one priority 196th and hwy 99 , I-5 and 44th, areas around grocery stores both Fred Meyers on 44th, 164th really bad, Walmart on hwy 99. Do not let Lynnwood become Seattle. Programs that take officers off the street like kids and cops should be suspended until transient problem been dealt with. Use city’s resources appropriately. Thank you.

    I think Lynnwood parks are great but would love it if pickle ball courts were added to Lynndale park.

    The parks would be more usable if there were more of them well distributed throughout the city.

    Love our Lynnwood parks! My dog and I walk through Meadowdale Neighborhood Park and the Meadowdale playfields several times per week. They are well cared for and the playfields always have an energetic, happy vibe.

    Additional trails in the Lund's Gulch area are a huge opportunity--we could have a world class trail system in our backyard, connecting to the already popular Meadowdale Beach. Would also love to see Lynnwood have its first ever disc golf course, which could be designed around natural features and provide another activity for people to enjoy in the outdoors. The parks are such a huge reason I love living in Lynnwood--keep up the great work!
