At an open house Sept. 12, the City of Kenmore is inviting the public to provide their input for interim improvements to be made to a new park.

The park, called Twin Springs Park, is a 25-acre open space, which the city acquired from King County in 2016 to be used for a park and as an open space site. It is located on the east side of 80th Avenue Northeast between Northeast 192nd Street and Northeast 195th Street.

The open house is set for 6:30-8 p.m. at Kenmore City Hall, located at 18120 68th Ave. NE. There will be a short presentation about the park at 7 p.m.

“Twin Springs Park is an ecologically rich site with wetlands, steep slopes, and existing forest,” according to a city press release. “Based on these site characteristics and associated regulations, the park will serve as a neighborhood park, predominately remaining in an undeveloped natural state. The park includes is a narrow band of land between the wetlands and forested hillside that could be developed to contain picnic areas, basketball courts, a play area, etc.”
