Construction to improve drainage at the lowest area of the lawn is complete. The area will remain fenced off for three to six months to allow the lawn to become established before opening it for use. All other areas of the park including the playground are open.

Overview and History

The King County Trail Levy which was approved by voters in 2007, provides the funding to create a trail head at Echo Lake Park. The City prepared a master park plan to guide decisions for the development of the park in the future. Echo Lake Park is located in the northern portion of the City on the edge of Echo Lake. The area surrounding the park is heavily developed and consists primarily of single family residences. The Interurban Trail was constructed in the Seattle City Light corridor on the eastern boundary of the park in 2004. The Park is named after the predominant feature, Echo Lake. The origins of the name of the lake are unknown.
