Celebrating 75 years of your King County Parks

In 1938, the Board of King County commissioners passed Resolution No. 6725 establishing a Department of Public Works, Parks and Playgrounds with a budget of $32,120. Thus was born King County Parks, the first county parks system in the state, with 150 acres.

From that humble beginning, King County Parks now takes care of 200 parks, 175 miles of regional trails, and 26,000 acres of open space, as well as facilities like an internationally-known Olympic-level competition pool, a premiere mountain bike park, and the best off-leash dog area in the region.

"Connecting communities and families through the creation and stewardship of open spaces, recreation opportunities and trails for future generations improves the livability and attractiveness of our region today and for years to come."
-Robert Moser, President & CEO, Laird Norton Wealth Management
