Safe Streets: Addressing homelessness and other issues on our streets

Do Everett’s sunbursts have you itching to get outside?

  • Students can take advantage of the beautiful weather passing through Everett and get their hands dirty with Everett Parks & Community Services’  Rings and Roots events. The free programs allow students in the community to celebrate Earth Day and Arbor Day while helping beautify our city.
  • Valley View also has an Earth Day project in the works. If you would like to participate, stay tuned to the Valley View web page for more details.
  • To find some egg-citing April activities near you, contact the Everett Office of Neighborhoods.

Get to know: The Everett Waterfront

  • If you haven’t visited the waterfront in a while, you may be surprised to see how it’s changing. Luckily for you, there are lots of upcoming opportunities to experience this evolving area: 
    • Waterfront Place: The Port of Everett is hosting a community open house for the Waterfront Place development on Thursday, April 20, from 4-7 p.m. Explore the latest happenings with the Port’s mixed-use development, and take a look at other events and upcoming programs as well. For a list of Port events, please click here.
    • The Everett Farmers Market: The Sunday Farmers Market kicks off on May 14, which happens to fall on Mother’s Day. What better excuse do you need to journey down to Boxcar Park and get some beautiful flowers, fresh fruit and locally roasted coffee?
    • Jetty Island: Although ferry service over to Jetty Island doesn’t begin until July 5, it’s never too early to start getting some of those island adventures onto your calendar! Everett Parks is now accepting ferry reservations.
    • Grand Avenue Park Bridge: Construction on a bridge that will carry pedestrians and stormwater from Grand Avenue Park to the waterfront is set to begin this summer, and wrap up in fall 2018.
