Sunset Beach Park was transferred to the City from Snohomish County in August 2021. After an initial assessment of the site was completed, the City hired a consultant to develop a draft design taking into consideration existing site features.
Based on the City’s adopted level of service and identified site concerns, certain elements emerged as priorities: safety repairs to the dock, erosion along the shoreline, parking issues, and overall accessibility.
A draft concept design has been prepared that addresses these issues and includes landscaping, permanent restroom facilities, shade structures, furniture, garbage receptacles, and leisure areas. View the draft concept design in the Redevelopment Design Presentation tab below.
The City has developed a survey during this exploratory phase that will help ensure that design and amenity preferences reflect community priorities. The survey will be open for one week and close on Wednesday, August 3. Staff will then compile responses and work with consultants to develop a preferred design. The design will be presented to the Parks and Recreation Planning Board and City Council.
