Located at 4700 60th Ave. NE, this park spans 11.5 acres within the Harborview neighborhood adjacent the inter-tidal lands within the Snohomish River Estuary. This park will eventually meet up with the Ebey Waterfront Trail that is being constructed along the Downtown Waterfront.
The first phase of a planned trail network into the restored Qwuloolt Estuary opened in April 2017, giving recreational walkers an up-close look at the waterfront that fueled our city's economy a century ago and easy access today to a natural habitat experience close to home.
The first phase offers 1.8 miles of shoreline trail in two sections separated by the estuary's dike. Future phases will connect the two current segments to complete the five-mile loop around the estuary and provide full pedestrian access between downtown Marysville and Sunnyside.
The Qwuloolt Estuary was restored in 2015, reclaiming the tidal flats. This area is home to natural wildlife and fish, and offers opportunities for site seeing, kayaking and walking.
Deering Wildflower Acres
Accented by thick forest and an extensive trail system that weaves through ponds and wetlands, this passive park is special for its quiet and solitude. As a condition of use, Deering must be preserved in its natural state for scientific, educational and aesthetic purposes. This park is located at 4708 79th Ave. NE.
The Bayview Trail currently spans 2.75 miles through Whiskey Ridge offering a pedestrian and biking trail for residents. The City is working to secure funding to complete a Phase III of this trail, which would connect the Bayview Trail to the regional Centennial Trail.
