Centrally located on 1026 Alvord Street, Old School Park is a perfect place for a picnic under the gazebo, an exciting bike run on the Darrington Pump Track, or just to let the kids play at the playground. The majestic Whitehorse Mountain towers above the park and provides a spectacular view of the "horse" that the mountain is so famously named for. Can you see it?

Bring your bike and get ready to ride! Have you taken a ride on a pump track before? Your in for a treat! A pump track is an oval-shaped bike route with bumps, curves and jumps designed to challenge riders' control of their bikes. Riders rely on momentum and balance to carry them around the track rather than pedaling. Pump tracks are a great introduction to mountain biking for people who want to hone skills that are useful on any trail.

A unique display of history awaits you at the Nels Bruseth Memorial Garden. The dugout canoes that are displayed were used at the Texas Pond Cedar Bolt Camp. There are picnic tables to use and restrooms are located at the U.S Forest Service Ranger Station located across from the park. In 1909, Nels Bruseth was the first white man to climb Whitehorse Mountain. Read more about Nels Bruseth and his wonderfully profound impact on Darrington and the surrounding communities.
