Purchase a Tile at the New Star Park Picnic Shelter

Purchase a Tile in the New Star Park Picnic Shelter

In early 2021, the City will be constructing a Picnic Shelter adjacent to Star Park. This facility will include picnic tables, a large countertop and sink area with running water and artistic features that match the unique character of Star Park.

The base of the sink area will be covered with 4 x 8 ceramic tiles (picture above, equal to about the size of an average brick). These tiles are now available for purchase.

  • As there are only 175 tiles available, purchases are limited to no more than 2 per person. They will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. If we receive your order after the tiles have been sold, we will return your funds.
  • Cost will be $50 per tile.
  • Other opportunities, including sponsorship of picnic tables, will be available at a later time for local businesses.

To purchase a tile, please print and complete this form (one form per tile) with check or money order made out to “City of Ferndale.” Printed forms are also available at the front door of City Hall.

Mail form and payment to City of Ferndale, PO Box 936, Ferndale, WA 98248.

For more information, please contact Communication Officer Riley Sweeney at rileysweeney@cityofferndale.org or (360) 685-2353.

City Seeks Old Ferndale Photos, News Clippings for Historical Preservation

Do you have historical pictures or news clippings of Ferndale? Pictures of Ferndale landmarks that are gone, everyday photos from life in Ferndale or just a headline from when a big business came to town? The City would like to see them.

The City will pick up your treasured keepsakes and scan them, creating a digital image copy that we could use to educate the next generation about the history of our community. The City would then return original documents to you, along with a digital copy as a thank you.

The city is especially interested in pictures that show parts of the city, community events or significant news stories. Anything earlier than 1994 is welcomed. The holidays are the perfect time to dig out that old scrapbook so if you have something to share, please email Riley Sweeney at RileySweeney@cityofferndale.org to arrange a pick up and return of your documents.
