Join us for a summer evening tour and public meeting to consider improvements for a portion of the park called the Lister Uplands. To be discussed: Dog park, picnic shelter, ropes course, traffic garden for bicycles, plus added parking.

Location: Salishan Family Investment Center, 1724 E. 44th St.

After the meeting, Metro Parks staff will lead a walking tour of the area before the sun goes down.

The meeting begins a process to update the park’s 2011 master plan. The focus will be on a portion of the park south of Lister Elementary School that’s crisscrossed by pavement: a vestige of the original Salishan neighborhood, which housed World War II workers and was subsequently demolished.

This part of Swan Creek Park also is north of the park’s 50-acre mountain bike trail system, east of the new Salishan neighborhood and west of the Swan Creek canyon. It’s where recent Metro Parks Mud Runs have taken place.
