The redesign and upgrades to Log Boom park approved by the Walkways and Waterways initiative passed by Kenmore voters in 2018 is nearing 90 percent design completion.
Among the features of the redevelopment current small beach just west of the existing restrooms will have concrete staircase down to the water, an expanded sandy beach, picnic shelter, and hand-carry boat launch. In addition there will be improved access to a gravel viewpoint beach further east with stone seating area.
Other improvements include restoring the lawn along the pathway and restoring the asphalt pathway that parallels the Burke Gillman trail that has been eroded by tree roots.
The final design is expected in early 2021 to be followed by permitting, and construction bids. Construction is expected to take more than a year with completion in early 2023.
