September 1, 2017 Progress Report:

Moorlands Park has seen major work this summer, but most of it is underground: power, water, sewer, conduit for cable, storm drains, footings and building subgrades.  The temporary path between the school and church drop-off points was readied this week for school's start next Wednesday.  The concrete sidewalk along 84th is being formed for concrete now, to be poured next week.  Park pathways have been cut to grade.  The park has passed inspection for its sewer and water installations, storm drainage is mostly in, the ballfield fenceposts are going up and the play area storm drainage is going in this week.  Once that is in, work will begin on the play equipment in several stages including footings, play surfacing and equipment installation.  Thank you for your patience; the park will be a noisy place for two-plus months more.


Project Description:

The Moorlands Park renovation will construct park improvements, including ballfield renovation, new picnic shelter, perimeter path and play area upgrades.



Moorlands Park was first established as a neighborhood park in the 1940s. It was transferred to the city from King County Parks in 2002 following Kenmore’s incorporation. The City of Kenmore prepared a park master plan in 2006. 



The Capital Improvement Program project budget is $2,190,020. The City received funding assistance of $637,520 from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office.
