The parks and recreation system in the City of Sultan is well used by residents and visitors alike. Approximately 36% of respondents to the City’s park survey indicated they visited Sultan parks at least once per month. The variety of passive and active recreational opportunities in Sultan’s parks and open space system provides recreational opportunities for residents of different ages and abilities.
The majority of Sultan’s park and recreation opportunities are located adjacent to the Sultan and Skykomish Rivers to the west of the City’s historic town center. Existing park properties have been acquired through donation (Reese Park), grants and City funds (Osprey Park and River Park), and joint use agreements with other agencies (Traveler’s Park and Sportsman Park).
