Spend a day playing your heart out at Old School Park! Centrally located on 1026 Alvord Street, Old School Park is a perfect place for a picnic under the gazebo, an exciting bike run on the Darrington Pump Track, or just to let the kids play at the playground. The majestic Whitehorse Mountain towers above the park and provides a spectacular view of the "horse" that the mountain is so famously named for. Can you see it?
Come and see the exciting new changes at Old School Park! Reflecting a long-held community desire to provide a park for skateboarders and bicyclists to ride and more opportunities to get outside and play, we have added a brand new state of the art skate park, new basketball and tennis courts, and a pioneer walk commemorative walk-way. This was accomplished with grants from RCO Washington Wildlife Recreation Program, the Department of Commerce Capital Facilities and public donations for a total of just over $1.3 million.

Bring your bike and get ready to ride! Have you taken a ride on a pump track before? Your in for a treat! A pump track is an oval-shaped bike route with bumps, curves and jumps designed to challenge riders' control of their bikes. Riders rely on momentum and balance to carry them around the track rather than pedaling. Pump tracks are a great introduction to mountain biking for people who want to hone skills that are useful on any trail.
