NEW — 6 a.m. Jan. 29, 2015
New names are coming for some city parks and open space.
In 2013, a park-naming committee was formed to provide recommendations to the Issaquah Park Board. Following recommendations, the City Council authorized the new names in a unanimous decision Dec. 15.
Confluence Park, 655 Rainier Blvd. N., is the new name for the 15.5-acre property known as Confluence Area Parks on a temporary basis since opening in August 2013. Areas within it include Tolle Anderson Homestead, Cybil-Madeline Green and Margaret’s Meadow. That name honors the late Margaret Macleod, a longtime city parks planner and Issaquah resident who secured millions of dollars for land conservation, and trail and park projects throughout the region.
