After coordination with the public to find what would best suit the needs of our community, the City was able to work to redevelop Sunset Beach Park, and provide a more inviting, accessible, and better utilized space for this pocket park. The community is invited to join Mayor Gailey and other dignitaries for the ribbon cutting ceremony of the newly renovated Sunset Beach Park on Wednesday, November 8, 1:30 pm.
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. The Sunset Beach dock replacement will be a separate project happening concurrently with the park improvements.
Sunset Beach Park is open to the public; however, some park items still need to be completed:
- Please observe the entry and rules signs that will be installed soon.
- The benches and tables are on order and will be installed in the near future.
