Southeast Redmond Park

Southeast Redmond Park

Location and Existing Conditions:

Southeast Redmond Park is a 3.2-acre undeveloped parcel of land that is a “blank slate,” with little vegetation or topographic change. This park is located between 188th Avenue NE and 191st Avenue NE, primarily fronting NE 67th Street. It is an important buffer between an industrial area and a residential area. 

History and Planning:

The property was acquired in 2002 with plans to acquire more land from Cadman Gravel in the future. However, this opportunity is not in the short term horizon and there is demand from the residential neighborhood to develop the park. There is a small privately developed and maintained park in the neighborhood with a playground, but insufficient green space for walking, cycling or more active play. The closest publicly-owned park to the Southeast residential neighborhood is King County’s Marymoor Park, a 1.5 mile walk away. 

No master planning has been conducted on this park yet, however, some neighborhood planning has solicited some early input on the park. 

Next Steps:

Southeast Redmond is a growing neighborhood with more than 4,000 residents and they will be engaged in a master plan to identify the types of activities that would be prioritized at the park and provide direction on the design of the park. The levy would fund: 

  • The master plan, with phasing recommendations
  • Design of the first phase of development
  • Construction of the first phase
