June 14, 2024

Beyond Everett

The day-use area of Kayak Point Regional Park two weeks earlier than originally planned. The park reopens today, June 14th, after being closed for construction since July 5, 2023.

As mentioned in our previous story, the pier (usually used for fishing and crabbing) will remain closed the entire summer, due to in-water construction for the new pier that is required to occur during the summer months, when work is least likely to impact aquatic life.

“We are very excited we can open Kayak Point Regional Park early – giving visitors three extra weekends to enjoy the park this summer,” said Sharon Swan, Snohomish County Parks Director. “The park is still not complete, and construction on the pier will continue through the summer, but in the interim the community can still enjoy their favorite saltwater park.”

What will be open?

  • Beach
  • Trails
  • Parking (and overflow parking)
  • Restrooms
  • Picnic shelters (reservations are open but not reservable until July 1)
  • New boat launch
  • Campground
  • Water trail campsites

What will be closed?

  • Pier (no access; no fishing/crabbing from pier)
  • Not all ADA amenities are constructed yet in the interim phase
  • Playground

What will be different?

  • Be aware of new traffic patterns – pay attention to all signs
  • New boat launch lane, queuing lane, boarding float, trailer parking, tie-down areas
  • Pier construction may impact noise and traffic
