Parks & Trails
Lynnwood's mini parks, neighborhood parks and community parks provide a wide range of recreation opportunities for all ages and abilities. Our parks include large open play areas, age-specific play equipment, sports courts, picnic shelters, spray parks, athletic fields, skate park, amphitheater and much more. Throughout the park system there are miles of multi-use trails for casual walking, jogging, cycling and hiking.
The Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department maintains over 350 acres of park land, which includes 230 acres of developed parks and facilities, 20 acres of undeveloped park land, over 100 acres of natural open space, and 14 miles of trails. We are always in the process of growing, developing and maintaining our park system to ensure that it continues to meet the needs and wishes of our community.

Trails maintained by the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department occur both within parks and outside of parks.

- Open Space
The open space classification includes large natural areas and urban greenbelts. It is the City’s policy to preserve its natural resources for the conservation of important habitats and for passive recreational use whenever possible. These may include undisturbed conservation areas, areas planned for park development, or areas with minimal passive development including trails. They typically do not include active recreation elements.
