You’re invited: North Bend Taylor Park and Riverfront Park planning events

North Bend Park Events

The City of North Bend and the North Bend Parks Commission invite citizens to attend two upcoming meetings for the William H. Taylor Park and Riverfront Park design projects, on January 9, from 1 to 4 p.m., and January 11, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. These meetings will provide an opportunity to participate in planning for the future of two cherished parks in North Bend.

Bring the whole family! Snacks and activities for children will be provided. Both meetings will offer the same agenda and format, so feel free to attend one meeting or both.

  • January 9, from 1 to 4 p.m. This event will be located at the Taylor Park Train Depot: 205 E McClellan St
  • January 11, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. This event will be located at North Bend City Hall: 920 SE Cedar Falls Way.

Taylor Park is a focal setting in Downtown North Bend, having served as a grassy place to picnic, a center for community gatherings, and it a home to the North Bend Train Depot. The design project includes:

  • A plan for better connection to Downtown North Bend.
  • Providing a downtown community gathering space.
  • Making more efficient use of the parking along McClellan Street.
  • Considering possible improvement and location for the railroad tracks and depot within the park.

Riverfront Park is a four-acre, protected river riparian corridor with a multi-use trail on the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River. Intents for the design project include:

  • A plan for better connection to Downtown North Bend.
  • Provide trails and riverfront amenities, while maintaining the predominantly forested character and floodplain storage capacity of the park.

For questions, please contact Senior Planner, Mike McCarty, at MMcCarty@northbendwa.gov.
