Auburn 2015: Dykstra Park
Dykstra Park is a small, 1.78 acre, attractive neighborhood neighborhood park along the Green River. It links to Isaac Evans Park via a suspension bridge over the Green River. It is a popular area with both walkers and wildlife lovers with its majestic trees, including holly and southern magnolia.

Named after Henry Dykstra, an early pioneer and dairy farmer. Henry Dykstra emigrated from the Netherlands to Michigan in 1888 and relocated to the Puget Sound in 1895. During the Yukon Gold Rush he sold milk in Dawson and throughout the territory for seven seasons. In 1908 he purchased a 94-acre hop farm at Thomas, north of Auburn, calling it Maple Water Farm. He farmed and established a major dairy farm. The property remained in the family's hands until 1967. The park is located on two acres of the Dykstra's former farm. The park was dedicated in 1979.
