Celebrate Dr. King's legacy of community service with a day in the park!

"Everybody can be great . . . because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Your park needs you! Join us to take part in a nationwide day of service, where people all over the country will be finding ways to give back to their communities. Help us spread wood chip mulch over the new plants that were planted this fall to prepare them for their first year in the park as they grow up into our future healthy forest. There is a lot to do - many hands make light work, so join us for a good workout and enjoy the beautiful woods at the same time! This is a family event, so bring the kids, as long as an adult will stay with them for the entire time.

Time: 10am-1pm

Where to meet: From the main entrance to Westside Park on 156th Ave NE, pass the basketball court and cross the lawn towards the forested area. We'll meet near the dirt trailhead for Bridle Crest Trail. Look for signs for the Green Redmond Partnership.

What to bring: your smile and perhaps a snack (we will supply water)

Address and directions: 5810 156th Ave NE, Redmond, next to The Meadows development

Where to park: Street parking on 156th Ave NE or on NE 59th Way in The Meadows, which is north of the park.

Please RSVP (the earlier the better!) so that we can plan a great event for you. To RSVP, or if you have any questions, please contact Gary Smith at 425/885-1250 or 425/765-2876, gandksmith@gmail.com; or Glenn Eades at 425/885-3842, geades@seanet.com

About the Property: In 2001, Forterra, the City of Tukwila, and a local citizen group formed a partnership to work for the preservation of an undeveloped parcel of land on the Duwamish River. The property will be managed as a public open space preserve devoted to the interpretation of the site’s Native American cultural significance and other aspects of Duwamish River Valley natural and cultural history. The Hill is culturally significant for its association with southern Puget Sound Salish oral tradition and history, as a key location in the stories collectively known as the “Epic of the Winds.” Learn more here.
