North Cove Park

North Cove Park is a four-acre waterfront park at the northeast end of the lake, next to City Hall, offering easy access to downtown Lake Stevens. 

North Cove Park is home to the Lake Stevens War Veterans Memorial and The Mill on Lake Stevens and the setting for annual community events including the Lake Stevens' Farmers' Market and Aquafest

North Cove Park began redevelopment in 2019 after an extensive planning effort.  The Mill on Lake Stevens, great lawn, pier, War Memorial, and beach were completed in 2020. 

The picnic shelter, observation deck, and playground were completed in 2021. The City consulted with Sherwood Community Services to create a fully inclusive playground with synthetic surfacing, wheelchair accessibility, and sensory features to allow all abilities to enjoy this space. 

The next phase of North Cove is currently under construction and will add additional park plaza space adjacent to a festival street named the Mill Spur.  The festival street will add parking and a flexible space for events.
