Ebright Creek Park

 

Ebright Creek Park Mission Statement

 

The Friends of Pine Lake and the neighbors of Ebright Creek Park are firmly committed to preserving the natural environment of the site by encouraging a passive park that will serve the City of Sammamish and surrounding neighborhoods and schools as a natural and useful learning environment.

 

 

Ebright Creek Park Values:

 

·       Ebright Creek Park acknowledges the value of sustaining the last viable salmon creek in Sammamish.

 

·       Ebright Creek Park adds to the quality of life in the community by working in harmony with the natural surroundings and neighborhood to ensure appropriate use of land.

 

·       Ebright Creek Park is a gathering place for all ages that demonstrates the city’s commitment to the community and to the environment.

 

 

Toward that end, the following should be adhered to:

 

  • The park must be a passive park.
  • Buffers and setbacks for Ebright Creek, wildlife and wetlands must be respected.
  • All trees must remain in the park.
  • The creek must be fully restored and maintained.

 

 

A covered shelter utilized as an outdoor environmental education center would be welcomed, as well as picnic areas, trails, an obstacle course and a viewing platform. Kiosks about the Kokanee salmon would be a positive addition in educating the visitors to the park. Grant applications will be sought by the neighborhood to contribute to the ongoing education concerning the native salmon, restoration of the creek and the learning center.
