Bring ideas to parks planning session Oct. 21
October 12, 2010
Bring ideas for the latest additions to the city parks system to Tibbetts Creek Manor.
A meeting to plan the future of Tollë Anderson, Cybil-Madeline and Issaquah Creek parks is scheduled for 7 p.m. Oct. 21 at the manor, 750 17th Ave. N.W. Residents can also complete a questionnaire about the parks at the city website.
The city plans to spend up to $1.6 million to complete the plan and build the initial phase of the 15.5-acre parks complex. Issaquah voters approved money to develop the parks in a 2006 bond.
Conservation rules and requirements attached to land donations limit how the creekside parks can be developed.
City Parks & Recreation Department employees kicked off the planning process during a public picnic at the site in late August.
In late May, parks officials picked Seattle landscape architecture firm The Berger Partnership to craft the overarching design, or master site plan, for the parks complex. The firm also designed Cal Anderson Park and Warren G. Magnuson Park in Seattle.
