Beaver Lake Park Master Plan


Beaver Lake Park is an 83 acre park in the southeast section of the City. The park was transferred to the City from King County in January 2003 and currently contains a large pavilion and lodge with public restrooms on the east side of the park and three ball fields, an off leash area, a picnic shelter, play structure and restrooms on the west side. These two areas are separated by forested area in the middle of the park. The park also has 1900 lineal feet of shoreline along Beaver Lake on the east end of the park. Over the past few years, incremental improvements have been made at the park on an as needed basis. The motivation for the master plan is to look at the park as a whole in a comprehensive manner through a process which involves the Sammamish Community.

Project Updates

A SEPA review of the master plan was completed. The City Council adopted the preferred alternative for Beaver Lake Park Master Plan on July 20, 2010.
