A community activity that helps protect our watershed and promotes better understanding of stormwater and pollution prevention.

The City of Edmonds offers free assistance and use of stenciling supplies to: Teachers, Students, Scouts, Youth Groups, Seniors, Businesses, Non-Profits….ect.

The City of Edmonds has over 7000 storm drains that allow rain and other water runoff to make its way eventually into Puget Sound and other bodies of water. Whatever enters the drains is discharged directly into these waters, by way of pipes, ditches or natural watercourses, all without  benefit of treatment.

Stenciling next to storm drains allows citizens to be involved in protecting clean water in your watershed and habitat for fish and wildlife. The message is highly visible and discourages would-be dumpers from polluting.

Here’s how to get involved in this activity:

Contact the City’s Public Works Department at (425) 771-0235, extension 1603.

The Sno-King Community Chorale has been delighting audiences since 2001 under the direction of Frank DeMiero. The Chorale’s guiding credo – to“sing with a smile on your face and love in your heart” – is reflected in both the programming and collaboration with guest artists throughout the Chorale’s performing history.

SKCC presents challenging and diverse musical literature in a broad range of innovative and entertaining styles. The addition of instrumentalists from jazz guitarists to classical orchestras, along with staging and costuming, makes each concert unique.

Sno-King Community Chorale continues its growth and its mission,

Singers united to uplift the public spirit through inspired choral performance

By working together, we will build on the traditions of great choral literature, former community chorales, the strengths of our creativity, and the interests of the arts in our community. And, we will experience the joy of creating an exciting and enthusiastic sounding choir.

Southwest County Olympic View Park

Olympic View Dr, Edmonds, WA 98020

Maps: Map of Park

Park hours are 7:00 a.m. til dusk

Description – Southwest County Park is a 120-acre, open space park. The park lies within the City of Edmonds limits, in southwestern Snohomish County. The site encompasses a series of forested ravines and Perrinville Creek, which flow through the eastern portion of the Park to Brown’s Bay on Puget Sound. Olympic View Drive winds through the site on its way from Lynnwood to Edmonds. The site has two nature trails — the larger trail system is on the north side of Olympic View Drive and a smaller one on the south side (inside of the bend in the road).

Use of off-road vehicles is not allowed on the trails.

Park History – During the mid 1900’s the area was logged and used as farm land and residential home sites. The area along Perrinville Creek, a 120-acre parcel of land composed of forested ravines and wetlands, remained relatively untouched. Pope and Talbot, early owners of the local forests, eventually transferred ownership of the parcel to the University of Washington. Then in 1971, Snohomish County obtained the site from the University of Washington through a State of Washington, Interagency Committee for Outdoor Recreation (IAC), grant. The deed transfer from the University contained conditions on the future development of the parcel, insuring that the parcel is forever managed as a passive woodland open space.

Since 1971, the 120-acre parcel has been known as Southwest County park. The Park has the distinction of being the largest single parcel of open space within the Edmonds city limits. The site’s past history lies indelibly on the land as evidenced by the buckboard notches in the site’s old growth stumps. Overgrown logging skid roads are now hiker’s footpaths.

“The little house with a soul…”

Ganahl-Hanley Log Cabin (1930’s)

Location: 120 5th Avenue North

This hand-hewn Douglas Fir cabin was built in the early 1930’s for Gaston Alfred Beck Ganahl in Seaview Heights as a guesthouse. The property was sold to Lee and Dorie Hanley in 1945 and was in the family until 1975 when they donated it to the City of Edmonds. In 1975, it was moved to its current location and became the Edmonds Visitors Information Center. After extensive restoration, it was listed on the Washington Heritage Register in 1999.

Currently used as the Chamber of Commerce information center for vistors.

Welcome to The Winged Pig –

       A Neighborhood Watering Hole

The Winged Pig is another venture from Chef Michael Young and his fiancé, Irina.  Their idea was to create a neighborhood joint; an adult place to have an adult drink in an adult manner.  There are no DJs, no loud music to scream over, no kids on fake IDs and no pretentiousness. 

Instead we offer two fireplaces, a motley assortment of wing backs, club & captain’s chairs, a sofa, a pair of big screen TVs with the volume muted and a warm, convivial atmosphere.  Perfect for date night, meeting a group of friends or just hanging out.

Their goal is to provide a stiff drink or a local brew at a reasonable price.  The food is inspired by street and bar food from around the country and the world.

Their collection of pigs grows every day.  We hope you will come join us soon.

Location: The Winged Pig is located in Old Milltown, on Fifth Avenue South between Dayton and Maple.
