Parks and Recreation Professionals Day Celebrates Staff


The town of Snoqualmie has one of the best park systems on the Eastside.

On National Parks and Recreation Professionals Day, celebrated July 15 and recognized in a city proclamation by Mayor Ross, the city recognized the dedicated staff at Snoqualmie Parks, which operates more than 40 parks and 25 miles of trails.

From mowing, ball diamond maintenance, trimming and mulching to garbage collection and restroom maintenance, park staff work hard to keep the town beautiful and enjoyable for residents and visitors alike. .

Take care of our trees

Through its forestry program, the city maintains and manages 10,000 street and park trees in city neighborhoods by planting, mulching, trimming and pruning. The Arbor Day Foundation designated Snoqualmie as “Tree City USA” for its commitment to effective management of urban forests.

The Green Snoqualmie nonprofit partnership, managed by the city arborist within the parks division, helps maintain and defend the city’s urban forests and open lands.

Improving our community all year round

Parks staff place baskets of summer flowers in the Historic Downtown and Snoqualmie Ridge neighborhoods, while helping to decorate trees with lights for the Snoqualmie Winter Lights Festival.

Parks staff also work closely with the Public Works Division on events where everyone is on deck, such as driving snow plows in the winter to keep our streets clear.

“Green spaces help boost our mental health and physical activity,” said Mayor Katherine Ross. “We honor our parks staff and all they do to keep our parks beautiful and vibrant year-round.”

Learn more about the Parks Division and thank them for all they do to maintain and improve our city’s parks, urban forests and quality of life.
