Wenberg County Park, formerly Wenberg State Park, is a 46-acre (18.6 ha) park located on the shores of Lake Goodwin in the community of Lake Goodwin, Washington.[2] The park is maintained by Snohomish County Parks and Recreation and includes a public beach for swimming, a boat launch, cabins, picnic shelters, and campgrounds. It is located at the western terminus of State Route 531. The county charges $10 for some activities.[3]

Wenberg began as a 20-acre (8.1 ha) Snohomish County park until the state acquired it in 1947.[4] It remained a Washington state park until July 16, 2009, when the state transferred the park back to Snohomish County in an effort to keep it open while addressing a state budget crisis.[5] The park underwent $3 million in renovations in 2018 to improve access to the beach and boat launch area.[6]
