Marysville is a city in Snohomish County, Washington, United States. The population was 60,020 at the 2010 census. Marysville is known as "The Strawberry City," as it was once surrounded by numerous strawberry farms in its earlier days. The landscape includes Mount Pilchuck, whose 5,300-foot (1,600 m) high peak can be seen from various points in the city and appears in the city's flag and seal.
Since 2000, continuing large residential, commercial, and industrial growth, combined with annexations of territory and people, has transformed this city, increasing its population by about 140% over the 2000 total of slightly more than 25,000. Marysville ranks as the second-largest city in the county after Everett.
