Front Porch: County to break ground on new Bothell park Tuesday
Snohomish County plans to break ground on Miner's Corner park at ceremony scheduled for 4 p.m. Tuesday. The 12-acre park is located at 228th St SE and 45th Ave SE, near Bothell.
The county in March approved a $2.4 million bid from A-1 Landscaping and Construction, Inc. of Snohomish. The county expects work to be done this year. Development plans call for a sports field, picnic shelter with solar panels, restroom, playground, paths and a 50-stall parking lot. Money for the park comes from the $70 million settlement Snohomish and King counties reached in 2005 over the Brightwater sewage treatment plant. For information, go to www.snocoparks.org.
Anchors aweigh: The Mukilteo Yacht Club will celebrate the opening day of boating Saturday at the Port of Everett. Activities will include a blessing of the fleet, a decorated boat parade and complimentary boat inspections.
The parade begins at noon and can be viewed from many shore-side locations between the port and the Mukilteo Lighthouse. Area boaters are invited to participate. For more information, go to www.mukilteoyachtclub.com or call Denise at 425-218-3359.
Museum to reopen: The Edmonds Historical Museum plans to reopen Saturday with its main exhibition on display upstairs.
"Growing Season: Farming in Snohomish County" is scheduled to be on display through Oct.5.
The building was closed most of the month of April for new carpet installation, painting, and the renovation of several exhibit spaces. The Edmonds Historical Museum is located at 118 5th Ave. N. in downtown Edmonds. It is open regularly from Wednesday through Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. Suggested donation is $5 per adult and $2 per child. For more information, go to historicedmonds.org.
