King County Parks Levy Renewal

By RCS, 04/11/19, 6:45PM PDT


Executive Constantine announces his plan renew the King County Parks Levy, connecting regional trails and improving access to parks, green space and recreation


King County voters approved the first parks levy in 2003. They renewed it in 2007 and again 2013. In its most recent report, the existing Parks Levy Oversight Board determined that King County Parks consistently meets or exceeds its levy commitments

Highlights of Executive Constantine’s plan include:

  • Building and designing regional trails.
  • Improving trailheads by adding parking and signage
  • Repairing trails for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding
  • Replacing 11 ballfields
  • Rehabilitating play area equipment in six parks
  • Maintaining park infrastructure, such as pathways, roofs, fencing, and electrical systems


The levy would cost $16.82 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value, which would cost the owner of a home valued at $500,000 about $7 per month, which is about $2 more than they currently pay.
