Tennant Trailhead Park, Phase I 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

The King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks will use this grant to create access to the soon-to-be developed Tennant Trailhead Park by building a paved 40-vehicle parking lot and trailhead. The project includes installing bike racks, a plaza area, a restroom, and an informational kiosk. Located just off Interstate 90 near North Bend, the 32-acre site was acquired for a natural area park in one of the most-visited recreation corridors in the state. King County will contribute $412,000 in cash and donations of cash.
