Adventure #1: Garfield Park
Garfield Park, at 2300 Walnut St., is located in the heart of the Riverside Neighborhood with 5.6 acres to play and explore. It also features this artwork which is one of four panels created by artist Daniel Cautrell in 2007. These fabricated laser-cut metal panels were a collaboration between the artist and students from North Middle School, Garfield Elementary and Sno-Isle Tech Skill Center! There are four sets of two panels - one set at each corner of park. Go explore and discover them all to see which panel is your favorite.
Adventure #2: Senator Henry M. Jackson Park
Located at 1700 State St., Senator Henry M. Jackson Park spans 14 acres and has HUGE open spaces to fly kites, play frisbee or pick up an impromptu neighborhood kick ball game. The park also has interpretive exhibits highlighting outdoor recreation, the environment and the legacy of Everettite and U.S. senator, Henry M. Jackson.
