Summer 2016
small civic blankIn the fall of 2015, after leasing the property for 40 years, Civic Center Playfield was acquired by the City of Edmonds from the Edmonds School District. The City has been operating the property as a park since 1975, with little change to its layout since its former use by Edmonds High School. Just under 8 acres, the park is positioned near the Edmonds downtown commercial area alongside single and multi-family housing.  

Walker Macy, a Landscape Architecture and Urban Design firm, was hired by the Edmonds Parks and Recreation Department in April 2016, through an RFQ and interview process, to lead the Civic Field Master Planning effort.  The project goal is to provide the City of Edmonds with a Master Plan based on community input that envisions Civic Field as a signature park in the heart of downtown Edmonds.
