Lower Pond at Paramount Open Space
Photo by Janet Way

The Lower Pond at Paramount Park Open Space is doing its job, filling with surface water after the rains of the past few days.

In times of drought during summer months, the Lower Pond is sometimes little more than a muddy spot, but it shows its worth in the rains. The pond is a natural filter, absorbing and breaking down contaminants and natural debris while allowing the water to filter through slowly.

During a massive clean up effort many years ago, neighbors came together to remove invasive plants. The site is now a natural woodland park with multiple trail entrances. 946 NE 147th St, Shoreline, 98155
