Cottage Lake Park closed for fishing
Cottage Lake Park will remain closed through the opening weekend of the lake game fishing season, which begins April 25, and through the summer due to the major improvement project currently underway at the facility. The King County Department of Parks and Recreation hopes to have construction completed and the park reopened in autumn. Public fishing access will not be available at the park until the project is finished. Nearby alternate sites with public fishing include Lake Ballinger, Beaver Lake, Lake Langlois and Pine Lake.
This ongoing construction project will not affect the operation of Cottage Lake Pool, which is located in the park. The pool will be open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and a new parking lot west of the pool will also be open for public use. King County is making a number of improvements to the park, including adding a boat launch, fishing pier, boardwalk, and play meadow. Cottage Lake Park is located east of Woodinville at 18831 NE Woodinville-Duvall Road.
