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
Construction is currently underway on 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 be completed in 2017.


Previous construction added the Issaquah Community Garden, a picnic shelter, restroom facility, interconnecting trails, landscaped beds and utility infrastructure.

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

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.
