Confluence Parks Area is ready for unveiling

August 20, 2013

Come to the Confluence Parks Area, 695 Rainier Blvd. N., from 5-8 p.m. Aug. 28 to celebrate the community’s newest park.

The city will provide hot dogs, pie and ice cream. There will be inflatable games for young attendees and live music for the adults.

The Confluence Parks Area is the “crown jewel in the city of Issaquah parks system,” according to a press release. It has three contiguous parks, Tollë Anderson, Cybil-Madeline and Issaquah Creek. The land encompasses 15.5 acres at the confluence of Issaquah Creek’s main stem and East Fork.

The new park includes interconnecting trails, a meadow, play areas, a restroom facility and, as its centerpiece, a picnic structure designed to evoke the land’s roots as the Anderson Farm.
