The City of Kenmore used two RCO grants to renovate Tl’ awh-ah-dees Park, part of the City’s 2016 Waterfront & Natural Open Space Access Project. The renovated park improves water access with a new non-motorized watercraft facility and float and hand carry launches. It also includes a community plaza, picnic shelter, public restrooms, trails, and elevated walkways with river viewing platforms. In addition to the amenities, the City improved the nearby wetlands habitat for migratory birds, fish and salmon species, and other wildlife by removing more than four acres of invasive species and planting about 15,000 new native plants and 5,000 new native trees throughout the park.
