Duthie Hill Park Trailhead Development

Category Overview

Local Parks grants help protect these symbols of vibrant communities, providing places for families to gather and play and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle in an era when people spend increasing amounts of their time inside. The WWRP is the largest source of local parks funding in Washington, helping communities fund the acquisition, development, and renovation of vital recreation areas and green spaces.

Project Highlights

King County DNR and Parks used this grant to construct a parking lot and staging area at Duthie Hill Park, a 120 acre square-shaped park north of the I-90 corridor on the Sammamish Plateau. It is the region’s first mountain bike skills park. This project allowed King County DNR and Parks to construct a 75-vehicle parking lot and staging area, install signage and park furniture. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this project is related to mountain biking.
