The City has been planning for the park use at the site located at 8629 20th Street SE and the adjacent parcels along the powerline corridor for a dog park, trailhead, athletic fields, playground, and other amenities.  

City staff sent out a survey to the community requesting feedback on playground equipment, trails, and design elements.  The Parks and Recreation Planning Board hosted a virtual open house on June 14th to discuss design elements and get real-time feedback from participants. The participants were asked the same questions from the survey in a live poll. 

 The City would like to thank the participants for their help in providing vital feedback to shape our public spaces.  See the results of the survey responses below:
