Lake Serene, Picnic Point CDP

Located in the Lake Serene neighborhood of the Picnic Point census-designated place, Lake Serene is a small lake fed by the surrounding land and is drained by Norma Creek, which runs through (and under) the Lake Serene neighborhood toward Puget Sound.

The lake is entirely surrounded by homes and docks, except for a public water access point managed by the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife, at the lake’s western end. The facility includes a basic boat ramp, as well as nearby parking. Bass and trout can be found in the lake, and motorized boats are not allowed.


The road leading to the boat ramp is 140th Street Southwest (formerly Cove Road).


The parking lot is located across Serene Way from the boat ramp.

The parking lot allows horsepower, but not horses.

In the parking lot is this portable toilet, which serves as the toilet facility.





The entrance to the boat ramp is accompanied by numerous signs and a bulletin board from the local community association.


The boat ramp consists of a series of concrete bars extending into the water.

Interestingly, there is a sewer manhole next to the boat ramp. It’s hard to see here, but the manhole is surrounded by the lake water.


Located near the boat ramp and the parking lot is Lake Serene Fire Station 23, of the Snohomish County Fire District 1. Located next to the fire station is Lift Station #4, of the Alderwood Water & Wastewater District. Both are at 4323 Serene Way, Lynnwood, WA 98087.
