Moorlands Park was first established as a neighborhood park in the 1940s. It was transferred to the city from King County Parks in 2002 following Kenmore’s incorporation. The City of Kenmore prepared a park master plan in 2006.
Total project budget is $1,980,000. The City received funding assistance of $637,520 from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office.
