Log Boom Park in Kenmore - Project Construction begins July 26

The City of Kenmore has shared with us the following information about construction at Log Boom Park.

Beginning the week of July 26, Log Boom Park in Kenmore will be closed to the public, including the parking lot, restroom, playground, and water access. Road Construction Northwest, Inc. will begin construction on the 2016 (Kenmore) voter-approved Walkways and Waterways Bond Project with work continuing through July 2022. The 1.5-acre Log Boom Park Waterfront Access & Viewing Project will expand beach & hand-powered watercraft access, restore natural areas, renovate trails, provide a new rental building, picnic shelter, seating, and public art.

What to Expect: 

The Park will be closed during construction including the parking lot, public restroom, playground, and beach access. Typical construction hours will be from Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., with construction vehicles and heavy machinery in the area. Hours may be subject to change.

King County’s Burke-Gilman Trail (BGT) and the City of Kenmore’s public pier will remain open during construction. The east path that leads to the pier will remain open with minor closures. The seasonal (June-August) float that attaches to the northeast end of the pier will remain open this summer. Portable restrooms will be located east of the park’s closed parking lot.

With limited street parking, alternative forms of transportation are encouraged when accessing the BGT or the public pier while the park is closed. Please respect park neighbors and do not park within private property.
