Completely obscured from Highway 2, south of Beckler Road in Skykomish and among the old growth landscape hides our own Field of Dreams. On approach through the tall trees and underbrush you would never expect to discover a baseball diamond at the end of the dirt road. But what better place to carve a baseball diamond than from in the middle of a forest of trees juxtaposed by our own beautiful Skykomish River? Welcome to our baseball field; this little piece of heaven on earth.
This is the site for the Fourth of July Firework Celebration, Music in the Park Concert, Electric Sky, Sky Art Week and Old Timers Picnic.
Features: Ball field, camp grounds with fire rings and picnic tables, RV trailer space (no hookups), an outdoor kitchen, restrooms and easy access to the Skykomish River.
Skykomish Depot Park & Sawyers Corner features the historic Skykomish Great Northern Depot, recently relocated and remodeled to serve as the Visitors Center and museum. It is home to the GNCR (Great Northern & Cascade Railway), a miniature 7½" gauge live-steam ride-able railroad. There is also a Bike Pump Track available since the Summer of 2017.
Public parking is available for the Visitor Center, Pacific Crest Trail hikers shuttle, park and ride access to Stevens Pass Mountain Resort Ski Area, fishing and boating access to the Skykomish River, and access to the Maloney Creek Trail.
Maintained by our local Lion’s Club, the former location of our Depot, this park runs parallel between Railroad Avenue and the actual railroad tracks. This is a popular spot for train photographers.
