The City of Lynnwood Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department staff has determined that proposed improvements to the Scriber Creek Trail will not negatively impact the surrounding environment.

After reviewing the potential impacts that could result from development of the trail, staff have concluded that the proposed project will not adversely affect Scriber Creek Park, Sprague’s Mini Pond Park, Scriber Lake Park or Wilcox Park.

For more information, read the Scriber Creek Trail Notice of De Minimis Impact Termination.

The city is offering the opportunity for the public to submit any concerns about this determination by May 7. See the attached figures for the location of the trail with respect to each park at Scriber Creek Trail 4f Figures.

    Scribner Creek Trail – WOW We may see some ACTION for this Beautiful Park- Up Grading this
    Park will Aid in the Improvement of South Lynnwood. The New Paths will provide an easy and
    Nice Walk for Light Rail Users to an from the Light Rail Station.

    However this Project is Moving Slow!! – I’m Age 76, I may have only 35 or 40 years left. Maybe I will
    walk the new Paths or Maybe Not!

    1. Re: Michael Miller’s question about project length, he should be still around to see it all happen!

      The park improvements should be coming online right around when the new Lynnwood Light Rail Station is finished. The Parks division expects most of it to be completed by 2023, with the northern most section of the Park to be finished by 2025.

  2. This is fantastic news. Are there any links available to a more thorough review of the project goals?
