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.

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.
