Westside Park Renovation Begins

Work has started on the 47-year old Westside Park located in the Overlake neighborhood of Redmond. This project will upgrade the park to improve playfield drainage, construct a new playground with a zipline, expand the sport court, install a paved path loop, and build a picnic shelter. Renovations will be completed this fall.
