LYNDEN — The City of Lynden is looking for the community to collectively say how it wants Dickinson Park to be used.

At 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 7, Lynden will meet with the public at the City Hall Annex, 205 4th St. The public is invited. Masks are required.

The informational meeting is about the nine-acre wooded parcel at the end of Fishtrap Way which the City purchased about a year ago.

Lynden Park Director Vern Meenderinck explained that the area will be used for a trail extension from Fisher School.

“The majority of the site is wooded and will remain as a passive park area for people to walk through,” Meenderinck said. “Other than the trail extension and keeping about five acres of it as a conservation area, no concrete plans are in place yet.”

Meenderinck also said that Lynden will develop a plan for the property “in the near future.” 

Fishtrap Creek and Pepin Creek join together on this property.
