About South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District
The South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District was formed in
1983. Bud and Margaret Waterman donated 40 acres to the District
on a site next to South Whidbey High School that is now known
as Community Park. In 1987, a levy was passed to begin developing
and maintaining the District land. In 1999, the District purchased
approximately 40 acres of land adjacent to the Park, which has
been kept natural with trails running throughout the acreage.
With bond proceeds in 2000, the District purchased 29.09 acres
of land east of the Park which has since been converted into a
sports complex with soccer fields, open space and a forested area.
Since its inception, the District has built four baseball fields,
additional soccer fields, an administrative building, playground,
skate park, restrooms and trails which wind through Community
Park. The District now also maintains Deer Lake, Goss Lake and Lone Lake. For more information regarding the history of Community Park, click here.
