Kenmore's new park Twin Springs

In 2016, the City of Kenmore acquired the 25-acre Twin Springs Park from King County to be used for a public park and open space site. The park is located on the east side of 80th Avenue NE between NE 192nd Street and NE 195th Street.

The City is holding an open house regarding the new park on Tuesday, September 12, from 6:30pm to 8:00pm, at Kenmore City Hall to gather input from the public on interim (1 - 5 years) improvements that will allow the park to be open for public enjoyment. There will be a short presentation about the park at 7:00pm.

Twin Springs Park is an ecologically rich site with wetlands, steep slopes, and existing forest. Based on these site characteristics and associated regulations, the park will serve as a neighborhood park, predominately remaining in an undeveloped natural state. The park includes is a narrow band of land between the wetlands and forested hillside that could be developed to contain picnic areas, basketball courts, a play area, etc.
