This past Saturday morning, the Rotary Pacific Northwest Conifer Arboretum was spruced up by the Shoreline Rotary Club members. The cleanup effort added several new trees, weeding of sedums on the kiosk roof, cutting back of dead wood and blackberries, as well as clearing of trails.

The King County Parks Division originally designed and constructed the Ronald Bog Park in the early 1990s. The Rotary Club purchased and along with the help of the Shorewood High School students, planted the trees during the winter of 1992-93. Additional trees and a kiosk have been added over the years so members of the public can learn about the Pacific Northwest Conifers located on the southwest corner of Interstate 5 and NE 175th Street. The path through the Arboretum was supplied with labor from the Rotary Club and materials from the City of Shoreline.

We hope you come to the park and enjoy the facilities.
