Residents can give Kent city parks staff input at two public meetings about development of the new East Hill North Community in the Panther Lake area.
Staff wants to know what people want to see in the new park on 33 acres near 132nd Avenue SE and SE 216th Street.
The site offers beautiful views of Mount Rainier plus it provides a critical connection to the Soos Creek Regional Trail.
Phase 1 of this project includes parking, utilities, restroom, shelter, children’s play area with nature-based play, nature trails, and ecological restoration consisting of native meadows, forests, and wetlands.
The City Council is asking the state Legislature for $2 million this session to help pay for the new park.
