For over 50 years, Everett Parks and Facilities and Everett Public Schools have partnered to allow joint access to each other’s amenities including meeting spaces, parks, classrooms and sports facilities. In 2023 the Interlocal Agreement between the Everett Parks and Facilities and Everett Public Schools will now include providing the community with new recreational opportunities by making several schools outdoor amenities available for community use when school is not in session.
The following schools were selected to promote our shared goal of increasing park access and recreational opportunities in our community:
Community access to these schools includes athletic fields, playfields, tracks, covered play areas, playgrounds and play equipment. Gates will be left unlocked and accessible after school in the evenings and over weekends and school breaks. Everett Public Schools reserves the right to close access for varying reason and will be responsible for posting closure signages.
About the City of Everett Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan
The Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan seeks to improve park access and reduce gaps to make Everett parks a place for everyone. The Everett 2022 PROS plan identified the need for increased park access and recreational opportunities to communities where a neighborhood is more than a ten-minute walk from a park.
Addressing these park deficit areas remains a top priority because access to outdoor areas and recreation is important to the health of our residents and our community. To learn more, please visit the Parks, Recreation and Open Space Plan webpage.
