Living In The Silver Firs Community - Everett, Washington
Silver Firs is a well-planned housing community in South Everett, a few minutes east of Mill Creek. It is made up of two large subdivisions referred to as Silver Firs 1 and Silver Firs Phase II. Silver Firs 1 consists of 720 homes and 60 acres of common area including several green belts. Some of the smaller divisions in Silver Firs 1 are commonly known as Glenview at Silver Firs, Highland Park at Silver Firs, and The Village at Silver Firs.
The newer Silver Firs Phase II neighborhood consists of 880 homes and 86 acres of common area including sport courts, tot lots, tennis court, and a youth soccer field. Silver Firs Phase II includes several smaller communities, including Canterbury, Canterbury Heights, Hillcrest, Pembridge, Scarborough, Sherwood, The Cottages, Thornbury, and Vintage.
Most of the homes in the Silver Firs community are within a mile of Willis Tucker Park, an 84-acre park with an activity center, amphitheater, baseball fields, basketball court, 4.5 acre off-leash dog area, picnic shelters, playground, water park, and walking trails. During the summer, the park hosts a movie night at the amphitheater each week. On sunny summer days, the water park and the playground are bustling with children. If you have a dog, the off-leash dog park is the best in the area. There's even a "shy dog" area separated from the main dog park for dogs that are bit more timid.
Silver Firs is managed by two separate homeowner associations. The older section, Silver Firs 1, is managed by Silver Firs 1 Home Owners Association and the newer section, Silver Firs Phase II, is managed by Silver Firs II Home Owners Association. 2010 annual homeowner dues are $122.57 for Silver Firs 1, and $303.00 for Silver Firs II.
Most of the smaller communities within Silver Firs border Puget Park Drive, while the Canterbury, Pembridge, and Hillcrest communities border 148th Street SE.
