North Creek Boardwalk  
N Creek Boardwalk
Repairs to the boardwalk at North Creek County Park have been completed and is now fully open to the public.

The original floats were failing and the boardwalk wasn't floating in many sections.  Over the past five years we have worked our way through the boardwalk replacing the floats, decking and bull-rails. All of the old floats have been replaced and the boardwalk has been resurfaced. 

A rson damage last June completely destroyed two sections of the south dogleg of the boardwalk. Those sections have not been rebuilt yet but they should be done by mid-November. 
Parks Advisory Board member needed
Residents of County Council District 2 are invited to apply for an opening on the Parks Advisory Board. Advisory board members serve four-year terms and may serve a maximum of three consecutive terms. The Board consists of 11 members.
