Maggie’s Park

This is quite possibly the tiniest park I have ever laid eyes on! Maggie’s Park in Everett, Wa is just .15 acres and consists of a single picnic bench and a lone tree. It does, however, have decent views of Puget Sound with the BNSF railway in the foreground.

After some research I discovered that Maggie used to be twice her size, but room had to be made in 2003 for the California Street bridge to be constructed. To make up for the loss Everett mitigated funds to Bayview Park just blocks away. Perhaps one we will visit soon, as it holds some sentimental value for this Adventure Sister!

A local advised me that the park was named Maggie after a woman on a mission to preserve the first homestead on the Everett waterfront. Standing there will make you understand why this section of land was first pick. The view must have been breathtaking with the Olympics jutting from the peninsula over Puget Sound on a clear summer day.
