Meadowdale Beach Park, Edmonds

Beach · Park
Meadowdale Beach Park is a treasure for our local community and the wider region. It is a beautifully forested valley with a 1 and 1/4 mile trail each way that many people enjoy. Lund's Gulch which originates outside of the park and is an active salmon spawing stream meanders and sometimes races through the length of the park to Puget Sound. The hillsides to the north and south ascend steeply and are covered with Alders and Evergreens and other native plants. The return trail is a very gradual climb and approximately 1/4 mile before returning to the parking lot it becomes steeper. People of all ages use this trail.

Lund's Gulch Creek is home to the threatened Steelhead Salmon as well as Chum, Coho and Cut-Throat Trout and reaches Puget Sound after traveling through a culvert that also doubles as a passage for people to reach the beach. There is a beautiful meadow just before the culvert which is used by many for picnics, volleyball, horseshoe, school outings and other celebrations. The beach has spectacular views of the Olympic Mountains, Whidbey Island, and the Kitsap Penninsula.

Many come to exercise, relax, picnic, beach walk, bird watch, even whale watch ( a rare treat), kayak and enjoy the view.

We would like to assist the Park Ranger if he has special projects that require volunteers. When we are advised of interesting events in the park or hear of educational programs that may be of interest then we can pass that information on to you.

If there are local meetings regarding preserving and protecting the park, then we will inform you of them on this page.

This facebook page is not connected with Snohomish County Parks and Recreation Department. We are an independent group of interested and committed citizens -hoping to help this Park and Lund's Gulch Creek stay vibrant and healthy so that we may continue to use and enjoy it.

  • A great family hike down to a lovely beach. This trail is not stroller friendly it’s down on the way to the beach and uphill on the way back. Be prepared for that if you have little kids. Our 4 year old was fine it was too much for our 2 year old.
  • Was visiting for the day would have loved to see the water but could not with my small children due to my was very busy so I'm guessing it's nice but we where in able to check out anything here.
