Tollgate Farm Park Fields Rehabilitation – Completion Fall 2020
The field maintenance work in the central meadow near the playground to support more field use has been completed. The fields have been leveled and reseeded with natural grass to provide a more level surface area that is safer to use and can be utilized for additional passive and active recreation uses. The open fields will be ready for informal use and sports play by Spring of 2021. The multi-use fields can accommodate two full size cricket fields with alternate use as soccer fields suitable for both youth and adult use. This project was funded through a $250,000 grant award through the competitive Youth and Amateur Sports Grant program managed by King County Parks.
