On January 27th we broke the news that the Clark Park Gazebo will be removed by the city.

On Saturday, concerned Everett citizens, led by Historic Everett are planning a “Heart Bomb” to show appreciation and love for the historic Clark Park Gazebo.

The 103-year-old historic structure is located at Clark Park, 2400 Lombard Avenue. The heart bombing will occur at noon to 1pm this Saturday. The public is welcome and encouraged to join.

On Tuesday, February 12, supporters gathered in the Northwest History Room at the Everett Public Library to create hearts and garland to use to decorate the historic structure.

Until the announcement, the City of Everett and Parks Department were working on plans to restore and improve the security of the Gazebo by adding historically appropriate shutters as well as adding a dog park to increase activity in the Park.

“We see a greater public benefit in preserving and maintaining historic structures, gathering spots and character in Everett”, commented Andrea Tucker, President of Historic Everett, “Enhancing, rather than demolishing them gives us all a sense of place and community.”
