Take our online surveys now through March 5 to provide feedback on potential improvements to the play areas at Hillside and Blackberry parks.
Blackberry Park, located in the South Cove community of the South Lake Sammamish neighborhood, features a play structure that is reaching the end of its useful life, and play area improvements are needed to meet City safety and access standards.
Hillside Park is located on Squak Mountain and home to both Upper and Lower Cemeteries. The 44-acre park is mostly forested with an open, grassy 2-acre area that serves as a neighborhood park. The site currently contains a backstop, picnic tables, trash cans and trails, and is the City's only "walk-in" park.
In 2014, public engagement identified the need for this park to have a play area. We are taking the feedback received in 2014 and using is as the starting point for completing these play area improvements.
