Hickman Park is located at 23700 104th Ave. W, Edmonds. One of the many wonderful features of this park is this spectacular cherry tree.

  1. What else does this park have? Beautiful Cherry Tree. I’ve never seen this. Appears to be some sort of housing or something in the back woods. I zoomed it on a 65 to 500%.
    Is this a safe place to go alone for walking would you say? I thought I might go there. It looks nice and empty ha.

  2. This is a great park and very safe for walking. You see young families here. There is also a covered eating area. On the other side of the park are single family homes. Visit the park. You will like it.

    If my memory serves me well, the park was developed when a school was no longer needed. Half was put into park and half into single family homes.

  3. Hickman Park is a lovely jewel in Edmonds park system: compact, user-friendly, safe. well equipped. It honors Dr. Robert Hickman who was first a local pediatrician, then the inventor of the life-saving “Hickman Catheter,” and in retirement a volunteer counselor at the Edmonds Senior Center. Generous service to his community was the hallmark of this modest physician’s career. rch

    1. Thank you for sharing this information. Our son was diagnosed with leukemia in 1985 and had a “Hickman Line” for the full 3 years of his (successful!) treatment. I’m delighted to learn this beautiful park is named after the physician who so touched our lives. We will be playing with our son, also named Robert, and his children at this park soon. Best wishes.
