Beginning Saturday, June 7, Lynnwood’s Heritage Park will host a series of open house events from 11am – 3pm on the first Saturday of June, July, August and September. The park, located east of I-5 at the SE corner of Poplar Way and Alderwood Mall Parkway, is a cultural, heritage and visitor resource. The open house events offer a unique opportunity for park visitors to tour the various historical structures including Interurban Car 55 that have been preserved at the park.
