All City of Edmonds parks, fields, open space, trails and beaches are open, including but not limited to tennis courts, the Skate Park, Off-Leash Dog Park at Marina Beach (OLAE) and the new beach in front of the Waterfront Center. A fun idea might be to check out the trails at Yost Park. Remember to pack some water as drinking fountains have been winterized but the park restrooms remain open. Please remember to recreate responsibility and help us to slow the spread of COVID-19 by wearing a mask, sticking to groups from inside your household and maintaining distance from each other.

Waterfront Center

Waterfront Center Redevelopment Project Complete

Be sure to check out the new beach in front of the Waterfront Center (between Brackett's Landing South and Olympic Beach). The project included removing one of the last remaining creosote piers in the Puget Sound and replacing it with new beach front (native plantings will be added in the spring). Over 50 creosote pilings and 4,305 cubic yards of contaminated soil were removed from the site. In addition, 100% of the stormwater from the parking lot is treated on-site to compliment the 26,000 sq. ft. LEED Gold Certified, all-electric Waterfront Center Building.

The parking lot is now open to the public, however, the building will remain closed due to COVID. Parking in the lot is free, limited to 4 hours and does not allow for overnight parking.
