Mountlake Terrace's Lake Ballinger waterfront park construction continues, with an expected completion date for the $2.1m project of fall 2021.

Highlights of the project include moving the 300’ fishing bridge north of the swim beach, constructing a new boat launch in the location, and construction of a new floating dock also in the same location.

Full details can be found on the City of Mountlake Terrace website

The park is a busy construction site, closed to vehicles and recreation while the project is underway. Plans for the park include improvements in other sections of the 55 acre park such as a pathway from the Senior Center to the new boat launch.

It looks terrific. One can only hope that the city has a plan in place to prevent it from becoming the new homeless KOA. The park was headed that way before it closed, reportedly due to the city's fear of litigation looking bad on social media.
