Boasting seven city and county parks within its boundaries, Lake Stevens provides an amazing venue of recreational opportunities. Disc golf, castle- like playgrounds, covered gazebos for lunching, and nature walks are just a glimpse of what’s available for your discovery.
With 1,040 acres of water to play in and on, Lake Stevens has ample space to accommodate a variety of water related activities. Water skiing, boating, sailing, rowing, jet skiing, swimming, fishing, wake-boarding and simply enjoying the view or playing at the water’s edge are all opportunities available to the public throughout the year. Boat access is available at Wyatt Park and the City Boat Launch.
The Centennial Trail provides miles and miles of asphalted and groomed trails for biking, rollerblading, walking, jogging, and horseback riding in an open, peaceful rural setting.
Fishing is readily available in the lake and surrounding streams and rivers. Lake Stevens is home to the landlocked Kokanee salmon. Fall finds the Kokanee making their way up the main streams that feed Lake Stevens to spawn. Children, adults, and visitors enjoy the close-up view of the brilliantly colored fish. A pair of bald eagles takes their residents in Lake Stevens and can be seen daily flying around the lake as they fish and hunt for food.
