Mountlake Terrace Recreation & Parks is an award winning department that has captured local and national honors in the Pacific Northwest for many years. The City has been bestowed NRPA gold medal awards, Parent’s Choice Awards, as well as local media outlets “Best of” awards. The citizens of Mountlake Terrace have supported both recreation programs and the parks system throughout its existence, passing numerous bonds; including the 1968 construction of the Recreation Pavilion and the 1976 construction of Evergreen Playfields.
The Department’s vision is:
“The Mountlake Terrace Recreation, Parks and Open Space system is well-connected, vibrant, and regionally important, and encourages interaction and understanding amongst its residents.”
