[ARCHIVED] - Learn More: Help Shape King County's New Park -

You’re invited to a May 27, 2015, public meeting to learn about King County’s Cougar/Squak Corridor Park near Issaquah, and share ideas for future uses and amenities in the park.

The meeting is set for 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Issaquah Middle School commons, 400 Second Ave. S.E. King County Parks Division employees will provide information about the 730-acre park, and gather ideas from the community about uses and amenities at the park, which was recently expanded by more than 200 acres.

The meeting will include a short presentation about the park, plus an opportunity for community members to share their ideas about future uses and amenities. Written comments will be accepted until June 5.

Following the initial collection of ideas, King County Parks will host a second community meeting on June 17, from 6:30–8:30 p.m., in the Eagle Room at Issaquah City Hall, 130 E. Sunset Way.

Parks representatives at the meeting will present a summary of community input received, as well as draft recommendations for Cougar/Squak Corridor. Meeting participants will have an opportunity share their views on the draft recommendations and ask questions.

King County Parks will incorporate ideas gathered from the community into its site management guidelines that will shape public use and recreation opportunities at Cougar/Squak Corridor Park for the next decade.

For information about the meetings, or to provide input, please contact Kelly Heintz via email or at 206-477-6478.
