As part of the city’s proclamation that July is Park and Recreation month, Lynnwood Today is looking at some of the city’s parks.
Lynndale Park is a 40.17 acre parked located at 18927 72nd Ave. W. It is located north of Lynndale Elementary School in west Lynnwood, and is Lynnwood’s largest park.
Approximately 22 acres of the park are preserved as native forest, with the remainder developed with active recreational uses, including athletic fields and a skate park.
The park’s baseball complex is jointly maintained by the City of Lynnwood and Pacific Little League. The park also offers an orienteering course and is a popular venue for summer day camps and scouting programs. An amphitheater is nestled deep in the forest, and features popular summer performances of Shakespeare in the Park.

The City acquired the land for Lynndale Park, Lynnwood’s second oldest park, in 1962 and 1965. This community park opened in 1969, the same year as Lynnwood’s incorporation.
Sprague’s Pond Mini Park
Sprague’s Pond Mini Park is a .5 acre mini park located at 5200 200th St. SW. The pond does not have public water access, but park users can enjoy the view and the pond’s waterfowl population. To protect the health of the ducks and geese, please do not feed them.
The mini park was originally developed in 1970 to serve the immediate neighborhood. In 2009, the park was renovated with a new play area, picnic tables, barbeques, benches, and a neighborhood access trail. On a Community Build Day, the neighbors built the new play equipment for their park and designed ceramic tiles that are inlaid in the play area seatwall.
