Museum exhibit to celebrate 50 years of the Edmonds Underwater Park

Opening Feb. 1, Edmonds Historical Museum’s new exhibit “The Perfect Dive” celebrates 50 years of the Edmonds Underwater Park.

Established at Brackett’s Landing by city ordinance as a Marine Preserve and Sanctuary in 1970, the Edmonds Underwater Park is the most popular park in Washington’s underwater park system — attracting over 25,000 divers each year.

For 50 years, the 27-acre park has grown through volunteer efforts to include sunken features and trails that draw interest from marine life and divers alike. Dive into the history of this renowned park and experience the depths of Puget Sound and its natural beauty in the museum’s newest exhibit: The Perfect Dive: 50 Years of the Edmonds Underwater Park.

The museum is located in Edmonds’ historic 1910 Carnegie Library at 118 5th Ave. N. It is open year-round between 1 and 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Suggested donation in lieu of an admission fee is $5 for adults and $2 for students.
