Amazon donates $140K for Strawberry Fields upgrades

Soccer players in north Snohomish County can look forward to future extended playing seasons thanks in part to a $140,000 donation from Amazon  that will help fund planned upgrades at Marysville’s Strawberry Fields Athletic Center. 


"Strawberry Fields is a true gem in Marysville and Snohomish County, providing a great place for children to pay outside," said Taylor Hoang, Amazon's head of community engagement in Snohomish County. “As Amazon grows in this area, we welcome opportunities to collaborate with local government to build an inclusive community for all.”


“We’re so grateful to Amazon for this contribution,” Mayor Jon Nehring said. “It demonstrates that Amazon is not only a business presence here, but also a community partner.” 

The City of Marysville opened Strawberry Fields, a 71-acre regional facility at 6100 152nd St. N.E., in 2005. Planned upgrades include the conversion of one of three soccer fields from natural turf to synthetic turf, which will extend playability of that field by allowing teams to play in wet weather. Last month the Snohomish County Council unanimously approved a $1 million contribution toward the synthetic turf conversion. 

“This partnership between the city, county and Amazon will provide recreational opportunities for years to come,” said Snohomish County Councilmember Nate Nehring. “Park improvements like this are critical to supporting youth sports programs. I am excited to announce this partnership and see this project move forward.”

The $1.7 million total enhancement project also includes the addition of spectator bleachers, new playground equipment, and trail improvements to the Strawberry Fields for Rover off-leash dog park. 

Project design and development is getting underway this spring. Check back for project updates at https://www.marysvillewa.gov/Facilities/Facility/Details/Strawberry-Fields-Athletic-Complex-3.
