Confluence Park
Confluence Park bridge concept

Overview 

Confluence Park — located in Olde Town Issaquah at 595 Rainier Blvd. N. — is comprised of three contiguous parks: Tollë Anderson Homestead, Cybil-Madeline Green and Margaret's Meadow.

These undeveloped parks, which total 15.5 acres, meet at the confluence of the East Fork and main stem of Issaquah Creek.

For more than a decade, this creekside area has been envisioned as a beautiful downtown park for our community.

After this project was approved by City voters as part of a 2006 park bond measure, we acquired the final properties for the park. Once we completed a comprehensive public process, a Master Site Plan for the park was approved by the Issaquah City Council in March 2012.

Timeline
Initial construction, completed in 2013, added the Issaquah Community Garden, a picnic shelter, restroom facility, interconnecting trails, landscaped beds and utility infrastructure.

In August 2015, work was completed on a habitat restoration project to help chinook salmon and other species, and give our community more natural space to enjoy.

The next step for Confluence Park is the design and construction of a pedestrian bridge across the main stem of Issaquah Creek, as well as a playground.

Our community chose the designs for the bridge and playground.

In addition, soft-surface trails will be added throughout Tollë Anderson Homestead, Cybil-Madeline Green and Margaret's Meadow.

Construction on the bridge, playground and trails will start in September 2016.


Funding

Initial construction cost $920,000 and was funded by the voter-approved 2006 park bond measure.

The habitat restoration cost about $1 million, which was covered by City funds, as well as grants from the King Conservation District and Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office – Salmon Recovery Funding Board.

Funding for the pedestrian bridge and other improvements includes 
a $1 million state grant, $900,000 from the 2013 park bond and other City funds.
