Welcome to Summit Park
In January 2014, in collaboration with the City of Everett Planning & Community Development, a group of community members began the planning phase to design and install an interpretive sign of the Cascade Mountains as well as the history of the Riverside neighborhood.
On Saturday, June 17, 2017 at 2pm the Riverside Neighborhood Association held a dedication of the interpretive sign (see video below). Among the attendees were a pair of siblings that had grown up in a home that was demolished to make room for I-5. They both live in Seattle now, but often come visit Summit Park, sit, reminisce and enjoy the views from where their home once stood. Today, Summit Park stands as a reminder of an age gone by.
For additional information about the history and the mountains, use the Summit Park Intrepretive Sign links in the left hand column.
