Meadowdale Park is located in Lynnwood’s north Meadowdale neighborhood. This neighborhood park, developed in 2002, combines active recreational development with environmental conservation to preserve the natural beauty of the site. Second growth tree stands are protected, native plantings replace invasive species to enhance wildlife habitat, indigenous boulders and timbers are preserved in the landscape and were used in construction of the restroom building and the public art.

Public Art

"Urbanization of Lynnwood" - Artist: Chris Vondrasek. The “totem” pole and benches next to the restroom building were constructed from rubber, metal and wood, using reclaimed cedar timbers.

History

The park site was purchased in 1998 from long-time Lynnwood residents Frances and Denis Murphy. The Murphys founded the Brackett's Landing Foundation which is dedicated to the environmental protection of Lund’s Gulch. They wanted their property to provide a park for the Meadowdale neighborhood, and to protect its natural habitat in public ownership.
