Issaquah residents are encouraged to attend a community meeting Aug. 26 to bring ideas and share their thoughts on the development of the Issaquah Creek Confluence Park Area in downtown Issaquah.
The City’s Parks and Recreation Department is hoping for a good turnout, in order to engage a wide cross-section of citizens with plans for the park, which will secure a vital corridor of green space close to the center of the city.
Hot dogs and refreshments will be served at 5 p.m., and the program will start at 6 p.m. The event will be held onsite at 595 Rainier Blvd. N.
The City recently selected a landscape architectural firm, The Berger Partnership, to prepare a Master Site Plan for the Issaquah Creek Confluence Park Area, which includes three contiguous parks: Tollë Anderson, Cybil-Madeline and Issaquah Creek.
The project to develop a city park within Olde Town Issaquah was approved by City voters as part of the November 2006 Park Bond.
