Parks & Recreation

The City of Arlington Parks and Recreation Department strives to provide parks and facilities that are safe and attractive and to offer recreation programs that are enjoyable to the public. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for the community through parks and recreation.


The City operates 17 parks that include over 248 acres and about 8 miles of trails. The City is fortunate to have the Stillaguamish River and many natural areas to enjoy. 


The City provides a variety of recreational opportunities for the community and visitors. We partner with community providers to provide activities such as athletic and fitness classes, hobby classes, and educational classes. Arlington is proud of our extraordinary community events that are offered throughout the year. From our Frontier Days, Fourth of July Celebration to our Eagle Festival, and Art Shows and Car Shows - there is something for everyone.
