What we call Homestead Field, was acquired by the King County Flood Control District after the homes that were existing on it were severely damaged by the 2008/2009 floods.
Now, with help from KC councilmember Kathy Lambert, Josh Baldi with KC Water and Land Resources, and John Koon with KC River and Floodplain Management, we at the Fall City Metropolitan Park District are working to make this beautiful property an asset for our community.
Invasive blackberries, not in sensitive areas, have been mowed and will continue to be mowed by the park district and KC to get them under control to make a larger area of the field more friendly and usable. We are allowed passive recreation only. So come on out to
go walking, birdwatching, or have a picnic! There's a good sized grassy field on the south end, and the community's welcome to pick from the many old apple trees.
Because this property is in the floodway, we'll not be able to place any permanent structures (read, no fencing for a dog park, sorry), but the property's large enough to get dogs under voice control well away from the road.
Please respect private property and be good stewards of this land. The property on the west boundary is not fenced, so if you do bring your dog, please keep them off of their nice grass.
