Extreme makeover resumes at Ravensdale Park

King County Parks, in partnership with Ravensdale Park Foundation and the City of Maple Valley, is hosting a groundbreaking ceremony of the second phase of the Ravensdale Park redevelopment at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, May 20 at the park, Southeast Kent Kangley Road and 272nd Avenue South.

The event features comments from King County Council member Reagan Dunn, Maple Valley Mayor Bill Allison, Washington State Senator Joe Fain, Washington State Representative Chad Magendanz and Foundation board member Rob Nist.

The first phase of work has been completed and includes a new indoor baseball training facility, a new synthetic infield for the baseball field and a new synthetic soccer field.

Phase two work includes two new lit multi-sport synthetic fields, restrooms, a parking lot, maintenance building and a community meadow – all of which is expected to be completed by this summer.

King County Parks’ Community Partnerships and Grants Program and the City of Maple Valley are each providing $2 million in funding toward the project, in addition to more than $1 million in funds raised by the Foundation.
