Future Community Park
The Cascade Golf Course property located at 14319 436th Avenue SE off exit 32, offers tremendous potential for a public park, both for active and passive recreational uses. It includes 28 acres of open space as well as buildings that currently house a General Store and a Pro Shop. The District intends to use recently passed Capital Bond proceeds for this land acquisition as it closely matches the community’s open space needs identified in the District’s Comprehensive Plan. Public master planning process of the future park will start in the spring of 2019. The public is invited and encouraged to provide input during the master planning process. This is an exciting opportunity to bring forth ideas for desired recreational uses and see your Capital Bond dollars at work. The property is suitable for variety of recreational activities from disc golf to camping, river access and more.
