Sudden Valley is one of the most beautiful places in the Northwest, conceived in the late 60’s and now home to over 7,000 residents, plus an abundance of wildlife.

Sudden Valley is proud of its community and offers activities for all ages and abilities, including marina, parks, playgrounds, miles of hiking trails, and an 18-hole golf course designed by the renowned course architect, Ted Robinson.

The Community Center recreation area, run by the YMCA, includes a state of the art fitness center and outdoor Olympic size swimming pool. An adult-only pool is located in the Adult Center along with the temporary library location.

Letter to the Community – Board President Larry Brown


“Despite my deep personal disappointment with the recent vote, the community must continue addressing the dire condition of our facilities, parks and trails, and roads. We need to determine which elements of that need to be implemented immediately and in the most cost-effective manner. We need to go forward as well in the permitting process in order to ensure that options for redevelopment remain legally viable.

We cannot wait to address many of the items requiring attention, and I want to assure everyone that we will use all of the resources at our disposal to keep Sudden Valley moving in the right direction. We have a loyal, extremely hard-working and effective staff, and a community that is as concerned and informed about the issues as at any time in its history. Let’s all come together to make the best of this time of opportunity.”

Lake Louise Culvert

Work on the Lake Louise Culvert that connects to Austin Creek is proceeding well. The culvert was in a failed condition (as seen in the below photo). Work crews have a technically challenging project before them, and when it is complete we will have another open creek bed instead of another buried culvert.
