Backman County Park

Backman County Park in Darrington, WA is your best bet for getting your watercraft launched onto the blue waters of the Sauk River if you’re coming from the Mountain Loop Highway. There’s a decent amount of parking and a single honey bucket on site, but not much else. Just easy access to one of the…

Forest Trail Park

Located in the fancy pants neighborhood of Gleneagle Estates in Arlington, Wa is Forest Trail Park. I had high expectations for this park due to its distinguished location, but found myself a little underwhelmed. There is off-street parking, a basketball hoop, small playground and a “forest trail” that ends abruptly at the saddle of a…

Lower Sauk Boat Launch

What a pretty spot to embark on a wild adventure on the Sauk River! I would even just hang out here for a day. There’s a nice picnic shelter and Honey Bucket available. Plus trails to the river. What more could you need than a few trees, mountainous views and a river? The launch itself…

Dot City Park

I have lived in this town for several years now and hadn’t ever stopped at Dot City Park. Even though I drive by it often I’m sure glad I did, as I really could see the work that has gone into this little pocket park in Darrington, Wa. Dorothy “Dot” Larson had donated the land…

Forgotten Creek Natural Area

Everett, Wa has become quite developed over the years and where there was once thriving forests and babbling brooks there now stands a sort of concrete jungle. However, if you look hard enough one can find little gems such as the Forgotten Creek Natural Area. A place that gives respite from the hustle and bustle…

Depot Park

Depot Park in Everett, Wa is a labor of love. Back in 1997 a group of volunteers called Friends of the Olde Everett Station and the BNSF Railroad joined forces in transforming this small strip of abandoned land into a beautiful gathering place for the community. Sitting just South of the former Train station. Once…

Maggie’s Park

This is quite possibly the tiniest park I have ever laid eyes on! Maggie’s Park in Everett, Wa is just .15 acres and consists of a single picnic bench and a lone tree. It does, however, have decent views of Puget Sound with the BNSF railway in the foreground. //ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=tf_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=pnwadventur0b-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=B01DFDBXZ4&asins=B01DFDBXZ4&linkId=8f29555c3167bcc44d25bcb3ffb919d5&show_border=false&link_opens_in_new_window=false&price_color=333333&title_color=0066c0&bg_color=ffffffAfter some research I discovered that…

Tour the Lake Part 3 (North Cove Park)

This tour around Lake Stevens began in a clockwise motion with long ago happenings at Lundeen Park and unusual history from North Lakeshore Swimming Beach. Today, we are visiting North Cove Park on the banks of Lake Stevens in Lake Stevens, Wa. This spot right here is what put this town on the map. Like…

Lowell Park & Neighborhood History

Lowell Park was established in the 1960’s when the neighborhood known as the town of Lowell was annexed by Everett, Wa. This once booming little town dates back to 1863. Nearly 30 years senior to the city of Everett. There were three major companies that kept this community thriving. They were Everett Pulp and Paper…

Foothills Park

I enjoy collecting adventures the same way some collect Star Wars figurines or old coins. Currently, I am after every Marysville, Wa park I can find. Today, I bagged Foothills Park in South Marysville. Just as predicted, it was beautiful and so well cared for. There isn’t really a parking lot for this park, and…

Fort Ebey State Park

Fort Ebey State Park is an all day experience with 25 miles of walking and biking trails. Our first stop upon entering the park was the gun battery, a coastal defense fort built into a bluff overlooking Admiralty Point on Whidbey Island during World War II. It never saw any real action, but it certainly…

Squire Creek Park & Campground

I had an impromptu day off today and invited a new friend out to see The Old Growth Reserve Trail. On my way home I decided to stop and explore the Squire Creek Park and It’s campground since I had only ever really driven through it. I am really glad to have stopped. Since it…
