Hi friend –
Join ESDA this summer on “The Yard at Everett Station” — a summer-long park in the heart of the neighborhood, right on 32nd Street between Smith and Paine Avenues.
To make it a park, we will be blocking vehicle traffic using large concrete planters, laying down FieldTurf, and adding picnic tables with umbrellas, a Little Free Library, informational kiosk, and yard games. It should be a great place for workers and visitors alike to enjoy lunch outdoors.

• We’re excited for the new railroad & transit museum and model train exhibit that’s coming to Everett Station.
• If you commute by transit through Everett Station, you can now bike to the station and safely store your bike using the Bike Link app for the low cost of 5 cents per hour.
• Sound Transit will soon select a recommended preferred alignment and alternative alignments for the Everett Link Extension that will be evaluated in the full EIS. In addition, later this week the agency will be publishing on update on the financial status of its ongoing capital projects, although we don’t expect new data to be available for Everett Link.
