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. Wenberg began as a 20-acre (8.1 ha) Snohomish County park until the state acquired it in 1947.[3] 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.[4]

The park has a boat launch and swimming area that can be accessed using Washington State Route 531. There is a $7 launch fee.[2]
