Tollgate Farmstead – Under Construction
Tollgate Farmstead infrastructure improvements to support agricultural programming have been completed including a new barn and a public access point with a parking area near the Farmhouse. The final finishing touches with cabinetry and appliances for the Farmhouse kitchen are slated for later in 2023. Programs are now scheduled on this site, the Farmhouse will open when final work has been completed.
Together with partners, additional grant funding has been secured from King County Parks Levy Open Space Grant Program for the WWRP Trails Grant Program for a later phase connecting Tennant Trailhead to the Raging River Trail system. Tentative timeline for construction of this phase is 2024-2026.
Si View Park North Entrance – Construction in 2024
We are working to improve connectivity, aesthetics and pedestrian safety between Si View Park and William Henry Taylor Park by realigning the North entrance area of Si View Park. Removing the old "King County shed" and constructing a new maintenance building on the opposite side of the entrance will provide much needed space for District equipment to maintain the growing parks inventory and enhance the overall visitor experience when entering the park. This project is funded through the 2018 Capital Bond and our Capital Projects Fund with initial work launching in late 2021 and maintenance building construction in 2024. Temporary closures of the North entrance may be necessary during construction.
