Construction starts late July on new Olympic View Park

Work to build Marysville’s new Olympic View Park is expected to begin late this month. The Marysville City Council on Monday evening approved an $847,212 construction contract with Matia Contractors, Inc. About half of the project funding came from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office.  

The park at 4202 59th Dr. NE in the Sunnyside area will feature plazas and viewing areas overlooking Qwuloolt Estuary, Ebey Slough and the Olympic Mountain range. It will also include an ADA-accessible trail connecting to the existing Ebey Waterfront Trail, a restroom, picnic shelter, slide, rock scramble, play area, wildflower meadows, interpretive signage and off-street parking.

Residents and travelers on 59th Drive NE can expect light construction-related traffic and short-duration work in the right of way at the end of 59th Drive in the fall, about midway through the project. Construction should be complete by the end of this year. 

The City of Marysville bought the properties associated with the Olympic View Park more than 15 years ago with the intent to build a future park. 

“The city is extremely excited to make this dream a reality,” Project Engineer Adam Benton said, “providing residents with another park and additional access to the Ebey Waterfront Trail and the Ebey Slough.”
