Ronald Bog wetland to be extended

The City of Shoreline and Sound Transit are proposing that the main meadow and portions of the lake of Ronald Bog Park be converted to a protected wetlands area with restricted public access.

Portions of the plans include:
  • the “Kiss” sculpture being re-sited elsewhere
  • the shelter by the lake being moved and rebuilt.

The Rotary-planted tree Arboretum on the east side of the park would remain accessible, and new walking / running trails might be built on the same side of the park, parallel to I-5.

The proposed change to Ronald Bog Park is due to Sound Transit locating wetland mitigation there to replace wetlands being disturbed / removed near the fire station in 155th related to the elevated guideway.

City of Shoreline residents are encouraged to attend a public meeting on this topic, to be held in Shoreline City Council Chambers on April 13th, 7pm-8:30pm, at City Hall located at 17500 Midvale Ave N.

For more information on the Lynnwood Link visit SoundTransit LLE, or about the wetland mitigation, email City planner Juniper Nammi

I think the idea that we can move wetlands shows our fundamental ignorance. How about we quit disturbing wetlands and instead learn to live with them where they naturally occur?
