About Us

Vashon Park District was created by the Islanders of Vashon and Maury Island in 1983 to provide park and recreational opportunities to complement our island lifestyle. The District is funded through a property tax levy approved by Islanders. The mission and goal of the Park District is overseen by a board of commissioners. Five locally elected Islanders serve four year terms to guide the community agency.

In 1995, King County gave the Park District park lands on Vashon and Maury Island that had been county parks. The Park District has begun forming stewardship groups to oversee the use, development, and planning for each park.
