Story

Garden plot growing tomatoes

If you are dreaming of garden with a lush bounty of fruits and vegetables and love being outdoors, consider renting your own garden plot at one of King County Parks’ community gardens.

King County Parks offers community garden plots for rent at North Green River Park in Kent. Each plot measures 10 feet wide by 40 feet long, and costs just $50 to rent per season. Plots are renewable from year to year.

The garden plots are located at a bend in the Green River near Central Avenue South and South 259th Street in Kent, and are easily accessible from State Route 167. The flat, fertile land features enough sunny acreage for more than 100 garden plots, where fresh vegetables and flowers can grow for months on end.

Registrations for garden plots are now being accepted from new gardeners. Call 206-477-7275 to request an application form and a chart that shows the available plots. Gardeners can also be assigned a plot by parks staff by downloading a registration form and driving directions.

Visit kingcounty.gov/recreation/parks/rentals/communitygardens, and click on North Green River Park Community Garden: Use Agreement and Garden Rules on the right side column under Useful Links. Mail the completed form with payment to the address printed on the form.
