Parks projects in Issaquah and Snoqualmie and at Lake Sammamish State Park, along with road access improvements at the High Point Tiger Mountain trailhead, are funded in the 2015 Capital Budget proposed today by the Senate, Sen. Mark Mullet, D-Issaquah, announced.

“Our ever-growing population calls for key investments in outdoor recreational facilities, and this budget does that,” Mullet said. “These are projects that will offer enjoyable outlets to our communities for generations.”

There are two projects in Snoqualmie: development of Snoqualmie Skate Park and the expansion of Riverview Park.

In Issaquah, the budget funds improvements at the Central Park Sport Field.

At Lake Sammamish State Park, the budget funds a new playground.

On Tiger Mountain, the budget funds the paving of an access road to the High Point trailhead accessible from Exit 20 off I-90.
