Protecting public lands for public use
As steward of 205 parks, 175 miles of regional trails, and 32,000 acres of open space, King County Parks is responsible for protecting public lands for the benefit and use of King County's residents. As part of this duty, we are responsible for preventing, eliminating, or in certain limited circumstances, permitting private uses of our public lands.
In November 2020, we hosted info sessions about the Land Use Guidelines and Special Use Permits at three virtual meetings, presenting identical information at each session, with a focus on circumstances specific to the Eastrail and East Lake Sammamish Trail during those meetings.
