Lake Stevens had been experiencing intermittent blooms of blue green algae since December 2012. This type of algae looks like blue or green paint floating on the surface and tends to accumulate on the lake shoreline. Sometimes blue green algae can produce toxins that are harmful to people and pets. CAUTION signs have been posted.
Example of how algae scum may look
Most recently, water samples were taken on March 11th and tested for potential algal toxins. Preliminary results show that microcystin, a liver toxin, was found at 23 parts per billion, which is above the Washington State recreational standard of 6 parts per billion. CAUTION signs have been posted at public access points to alert residents and lake users to the potential risks.
Snohomish County and the City of Lake Stevens will continue to monitor the lake for algal blooms. Find more information about this condition at http://www1.co.snohomish.wa.us/Departments/Public_Works/Divisions/SWM/L/Stevens_Alert_2012.htm
Wyatt Park overlooks the beautiful waters of Lake Stevens and the picturesque snowcapped Cascade Mountains. Picnic or sunbathe on the lawn, fish from the dock, or launch your boat for water-skiing and boating from the modern boat launch. Boating Regulations.
Parking/Boat Launch permits ($7) must be purchased prior to launching. Daily passes may be purchased at the park or purchase an annual pass ($70) online or at the Parks & Recreation office.
The site was originally known as Davies Beach. The privately owned beach provided beach access and picnic sites to the local Lake Stevens community for decades. The Parks Department purchased the property and provided a developed parking lot and improved facilities. In the early 90’s the park was redeveloped and received dock and boat launch improvements and landscaping.
In Everett take the Snohomish-Wenatchee exit off I-5 onto US2. Take the 20th St SE exit at the end of the trestle; approximately 2 miles to a traffic light at SR9; cross the intersection; approximately 2 miles to a 4-way stop; turn left onto S Lake Stevens Rd; approximately 1/2 mile; turn left onto Davies Road; 1 mile to park.
