In 1938, the Board of King County commissioners passed Resolution No. 6725 establishing a Department of Public Works, Parks and Playgrounds with a budget of $32,120. Thus was born King County Parks, the first county parks system in the state, with 150 acres.

From that humble beginning, King County Parks now takes care of 200 parks, 175 miles of regional trails, and 26,000 acres of open space, as well as facilities like an internationally-known Olympic-level competition pool, a premiere mountain bike park, and the best off-leash dog area in the region.

King County residents love their parks and trails, and we invite you to join us throughout 2013, as we honor our first seven and half decades and get ready for the next 75 years of King County Parks!
