Klahanie Park Master Plan

Project Overview:

Klahanie Park is a 64-acre park located in the southeast section of the City. The park was built by a Homeowners Association and transferred to King County in 1994 following construction. In January 2016, Klahanie Park was transferred to the City as part of the Klahanie annexation. The park is comprised of natural turf fields such as two multi-purpose sports fields, one baseball field and a cricket pitch. Additionally, the park features a small play structure, restrooms, parking, a segment of King County’s East Plateau Regional Trail, natural areas and Queen’s Bog, which is one of roughly fifty bogs located in Washington State. 


The following is a preliminary scope of work that will be refined with the selected consultant. Public involvement will be an important component of this project. A twelve to eighteen-month effort is envisioned. It is anticipated that the master plan process will consist of three phases as described below:

Phase 1 Site Investigation and Analysis - Develop a base map drawing based on discussions with City staff, existing surveys and maps, GIS data, aerial photos, and site visits. The base map shall identify and locate natural and man-made features including topography, wetlands, streams, vegetation, utilities, structures, boundaries, access roads and other features as necessary. Deliverables shall include a graphic summarizing site opportunities and constraints at an appropriate scale and a report that summarizes the site analysis.

Phase 2 Park Program - Facilitate and conduct a community engagement process to ascertain public sentiment regarding needs, desires, opportunities and constraints. Based upon the results of site analysis, City staff input, technical input and initial public input, develop a preliminary park design program detailing proposed uses, design character and criteria.

Phase 3 Master Plan Development - Prepare and present Master Plan alternatives based upon the approved design program. Prepare a narrative that summarizes the existing conditions, design alternatives, cost implications and regulatory criteria, and identifies issues which require further study at the next stage of project development. Prepare and present preferred Master Plan alternative and provide updated cost estimate. Final deliverable will be a Master Plan Report, with final project drawings and narrative, project process, project phasing scenarios and phase costs.


A budget of up to $180,000 is identified in the Request for Proposals. Upon selection of a qualified consultant, scope and fee shall be negotiated.
