A new, four-acre city park is coming to North Bend! Located on SE North Bend Way east of the 436th Avenue SE roundabout, the Dahlgren Family Park will include playground equipment, trails, a picnic shelter, a sand volleyball court, a restroom, and trail connection to King County’s existing Tanner Landing Park.
King County is also in the process of planning enhancements for their adjacent Tanner Landing Park. Once complete, Tanner Landing Park will include vehicle access using the roadway constructed at the Dahlgren Family Park, connecting a new Middle Fork Snoqualmie River kayaking and rafting access area. It will also provide additional parking, a non-motorized boating drop-off area, and a picnic area.
Washington State Department of Natural Resources is in the process of park construction that was coordinated through an interlocal agreement with the City. Construction is anticipated to be complete by the end of the year.
A brief zoning history: the Dahlgren property
The Dahlgren Family Park is located on the east side of the parcel locally known as the Dahlgren property. The Dahlgren family had owned the property since the 1950s. While the zoning on the property was previously Employment Park-1 (EP-1), allowing for manufacturing and industrial uses, in 2010 the property owner and the City worked together to create the Tanner Landing Master Plan Overlay. The Overlay allowed for residential use and created the requirement for a city-owned park on the Dahlgren property. This allowed the property and its uses to be more compatible with the County’s Tanner Landing Park and the City’s vision.
