In our most recent Comcast Neighborhoods, host Sabrina Register takes us to Lynnwood, a Snohomish County city with a population of about 35,000. You’ll find this new segment On Demand. Comcast Digital TV customers can go to On Demand and then click on “Get Local.” Then go to ‘Around the Sound” and click “Neighborhoods.”
Among the sights and sounds and people featured:
While many talk of Lynnwood and shopping opportunities in the same breath, there are lots of recreational activities to keep the visitor entertained. More than a million golfers have teed off at the Lynnwood Municipal Course since it first opened 20 years ago.
With retirement of its 20-year-financing bond taking place this fall, the municipal course looks toward the future and planned course improvements, like a warm-up and hitting area, better parking and expanded concessions.
Move past Lynnwood’s shopping complexes and malls, and you’ll experience beauty and tranquility. Public art dots the city landscape.
One percent of every major construction project in Lynnwood is set aside to create public art in the city.
While the city has grown, so has it’s art collection, found in many of Lynnwood’s parks and in front of administrative buildings. Enjoy!
Lynnwood’s own trolley is nestled off Interstate 5 at Heritage Park, three acres that the city purchased in 1999 in order to preserve historical structures.
The crown jewel of the park is the Interurban Trolley Car 55, which used to transport people from Alderwood Manor to Seattle and Everett from 1910-1939. Considered the “Cadillac” of electric rail cars, the faithfully restored #55 is the only one remaining of the original six trolleys.
It doesn’t matter if the weather turns. In Lynnwood, you can splash around all year! The newly renovated recreation center has all the bells and whistles swimmers and water thrill seekers want. With not one but two 200-foot slides, a spray pool, a current river, two hot tubs, and a retractable roof. This indoor facility is your ticket to fun!
