Project Update: Confluence Park Pedestrian Bridge

Work is underway to add a pedestrian bridge spanning Issaquah Creek to Confluence Park.

A crane lifted the bridge into place Feb. 28, 2017, and work is now continuing to complete the bridge and other amenities.

Using a grant and voter-approved park bond funds, as well as other City funds, we will add new amenities throughout the park, including:

  • A pedestrian bridge over the main stem of Issaquah Creek, connecting Margaret's Meadow with Tollë Anderson Homestead and Cybil-Madeline Green
  • A parking area at Margaret's Meadow
  • A playground with exciting new features
  • Soft-surface pedestrian trails
  • A confluence overlook area

The entire project will be completed by late spring. We will work with our contractor to minimize noise and traffic impacts to the surrounding neighborhood.

Confluence Park, 595 Rainier Blvd. N., encompasses 15.5 acres and is comprised of three contiguous parks: Tollë Anderson Homestead, Cybil-Madeline Green and Margaret's Meadow.

The timber arch bridge design, featuring elements inspired by mayfly wings, and a playground, featuring a natural climbing structure and a palisades boulder, were chosen by residents and park users.
