Tollgate Farm Park Fields Rehabilitation – In Progress
The central meadow near the playground is undergoing a maintenance project to support more use. The fields will be 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. This project will resume in the spring with additional regrading and reseeding when weather conditions permit. The open fields will be ready for informal use and sports play late 2020. 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 is funded through a $250,000 grant award through the competitive Youth and Amateur Sports Grant program managed by King County Parks.
