FRIENDS OF STANWOOD PARKS AND TRAILS
From the wayfinding signs around town, to the Amtrak train station, it is exciting to see improvements to our community, big and small, that can be traced back to the Design Assistance Team efforts (DAT and SDAT). We are particularly excited about the procurement of two riverfront properties for new city parks, and recent city-led efforts to plan a more comprehensive trail system for pedestrians and bicyclists.
We want to continue to be part of the effort to “design our destiny” – and we feel that the best way to do that now is to evolve into a new role as FRIENDS OF STANWOOD PARKS AND TRAILS

What is Design Stanwood?...
Who is Design Stanwood?...
For almost one hundred years, Stanwood has been many special things, not the least of which is two rather distinct places that share common ground but speak to different needs in our communities and resonate with different voices. We feel it is time to bring these different entities together in a sympathetic unity with a design that bespeaks our rich and vital history while utilizing its distinctive strengths.
