Scriber Lake Park Boardwalk Trail

Category Overview

Local Parks grants help protect these symbols of vibrant communities, providing places for families to gather and play and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle in an era when people spend increasing amounts of their time inside. The WWRP is the largest source of local parks funding in Washington, helping communities fund the acquisition, development, and renovation of vital recreation areas and green spaces.

Project Highlights

The City of Lynnwood will use this grant to develop an accessible elevated boardwalk trail and two wildlife viewpoints on the shoreline of Scriber Lake within Scriber Lake Park, located in the City of Lynnwood. The City will construct approximately 1,300 linear feet (.24 mile) of elevated boardwalk, two lake viewpoints/lookouts to the lake, improve connections to an existing floating dock, update 2 parking stalls to be ADA compliant, restore the lakes natural hydrology and habitat, and install an ADA accessible route from the parking lot to the new boardwalk trail.  The primary outdoor recreation opportunities provided by this project are walking, wildlife viewing, fishing and environmental education.With 24 acres of wetlands, a lake, streams, trails, forest and hillsides, Scriber Lake Park provides a haven for wildlife and a respite from the urban environment for residents. The City’s only public lake supports a variety of waterfowl, Osprey, Largemouth bass, Perch, River otter and Beaver. The goal of the project is to provide year-round access to the natural environment for residents of the City’s lowest income neighborhood.
