Lynchview Park

Project Update

At the final community gathering on April 5, 2018, PP&R shared a final draft design for Lynchview Park. Construction is planned to start in spring 2019.


Project Overview

A new playground area, pathways, benches, irrigation improvements, and other park amenities will be added to Lynchview Park, thanks to funding from the Parks Replacement Bond and System Development Charges. Lynchview Park is located at SE 165th Avenue and SE Market Street.

Through a Project Advisory Committee and Community Open House events, the community will help guide the development of a concept plan for the layout of the park and the design of the playground.
