After months of renovation, Skyway Park is now open to the public after a major capital project that added a new playground, installed a new mini-turf soccer field, refurbished the softball field, and upgraded the basketball court. King County Parks also installed a new pathway with security lighting and improved ADA accessibility.
On Wednesday, March 30, King County Parks broke ground on the third segment of the Lake to Sound Trail. Once fully completed, the 16-mile multiuse path will link the southern tip of Lake Washington to the Puget Sound — from Renton to Des Moines — connecting several south King County cities and trails along the way.
The latest 2.2-mile segment will start in southern Burien, then run along SeaTac’s western edge, ending about a half-mile west of the Angle Lake light rail station. The segment is set to open late next year.
