Phase I site plan for Echo Lake Park

Improvements to Echo Lake Park are currently underway and are expected to be completed by the end of September.

The beach and east side of the lake will be open Thursday, July 3 through Monday, July 14. 

Although the park is a construction site, the City will be working with the contractor to provide as much public access as possible to the beach and fishing area during construction. Construction updates and when the beach and fishing area will be open will be posted on site and provided on the webpage.
The contractor, L.W. Sundstrom, Inc., installed a construction fence enclosing the entire park as construction site on June 23. Construction must occur in the dry, warm weather conditions of summer to allow germination of the grass seed and to provide stable ground conditions for the heavy equipment needed to pave the pathways, grade the site, and lay underground utility and irrigation lines.

Park improvements will include handicapped accessible porous asphalt pathway connections, improved handicapped accessible beach access, a tot play structure with safety surfacing, a re-graded/seeded open lawn area, irrigation system, benches, picnic tables, bike racks, a barbeque grill, and renovations to the existing restroom (one unisex stall design).

Echo Lake Park is located at 1521 North 200th Street at the northern section of the Interurban Trail. The Echo Lake Park Improvement project is being funded by the King County Trail and Park Levy that is intended to make improvements to facilities that improve our regional trail system.

Echo Lake Park serves as the north Shoreline trailhead for the Interurban Trail with parking, restroom and other amenities for trail users. City staff worked with trail users, adjacent property owners and the Echo Lake Neighborhood Association to develop a Master Plan to ensure that improvements met their needs. The Master Plan was adopted in 2013. If you have any questions about the project, contact Maureen Colaizzi, Park Project Coordinator 206-801-2603.
