Woodinville considers four parks for bond issue

parks bond issue by Jeff Switzer
City staff and the City Council have narrowed down a list of park projects they will be seeking funding for via the upcoming countywide open space, parks, and recreation bond election expected this September.
   Park projects for the bond include:   The city received suggestions from the community and will be working with various neighborhoods to see if specific park locations are acceptable to residents.
   One such site is the acquisition and development of the "Winchester Pond Neighborhood," composed of two tracts in Winchester Hills Division II near the regional stormwater pond on NE 190th Place between 132nd and 136th Avenue NE.
   Other ideas include an interpretive trail along Tributary 87 behind the future Boston Market, the Sorenson ball fields, and a partnership with the Northshore School district for lighting the Woodinville High School soccer field.
