Problem With Everett Parks? Take The Survey

August 23, 2015

Everett, Everett Government

Clark Park 9

The Parks Department put up a chain link fence with padlock to keep people out of this Gazebo due to vandalism.

Lately there have been a lot of complaints of problems at Everett Parks.

From the timing of the closure of Howarth Park Beach to moms enlisting bikers to take back Clark Park.

What you may not know is that the Everett Parks Department is actively seeking your feedback and input.

They’ve launched an online survey for people who use Everett Parks and are offering a $250 prize to a random person who takes that survey.

In addition to immediate concerns, the Everett Parks Department is working on its long range planning and will be holding a series of community listening sessions to gather input from the public.

Two of these sessions are scheduled for September. The first is Wednesday September 9th from 6:00 – 8:00PM at the south Everett Police precinct at 1121 SE Everett Mall Way. The next will be Monday September 14th at the Everett Station, Weyerhaeuser Room, 3201 Smith Avenue also from 6:00 – 8:00PM.

Looking for more ways to get involved with Everett Parks or need more information? Call the Recreation Office at 425-257-8300 ext. 2.

  2. Honestly Says:

    So the city and parks allow a group of all good and bad people to take over cleaning up the parks.
    The park rangers and city police stand and watch. Turn their heads as people are assaulted and they property it tossed out. So now the parks are taken over by the same things just a different group. Why is there not more funding for our parks? Well, we are paying for people to sit on welfare, ssi, ssi disability because they can not work. Yet, why are these people able to sit at a park all day long. Because they are the same people who are taking funding, let’s pull some names and find out how much these people with so much extra time to do all the things others can’t are draining state funding. Tired of people draining resources because they make every excuse why they can not work. Well the drugs addicts have their own list of reasons why they us drugs.
    Congratulations to Everett parks and police for turning their heads to the violence of people and property by what appears to be that of a gang. Do you really think this fixes anything. This will get worse… police will need to take back control, I hope before this gets to their heads.

    Don’t think honest people need a $250 incentive. Please waste my taxes at a casino or strip club.

      What a lame comment to put under such a great story.

      Pointless Negativity in hopes to be ‘funny’…

      However, definitely Giggle worthy because HILLARY was the first to enter the contest by completing a survey!

      Also — how it would have anything to do with yours or anyones taxes — when the money was pooled together by people who are involved?
