Construction Schedule

The City Council approved a contract with IMCO General Construction to build the first phase of Meydenbauer Bay Park.  Construction began in early May 2017 and is expected to be complete by the end of 2018.  Project highlights include:

  • Relocation and expansion of the public swimming beach
  • Construction of a new beach house with restrooms and showers
  • Creation of a curvilinear pedestrian pier and hand-carry boat launch
  • Conversion of the lower portions of the existing park into a natural ravine
  • Lake Washington Boulevard right-of-way improvements, including undergrounding of overhead power lines
  • 99th Street parking lot and marina entrance improvements
  • Walking paths, picnic areas, pedestrian promenade and children's play area.

Work will occur primarily west and northwest of 99th Avenue NE to connect with and expand the existing park, which will be closed during construction. 

The Park is expected to be open mid to late January 2019.
