Fresh pics: Ronald Bog Park reopens

Publish Date

Looking for a nice spot for a sunny picnic or socially distanced walk? Shoreline's Ronald Bog Park is officially open to the public again, as of July 27.

Link light rail will reach Shoreline in 2024 as part of the Lynnwood Link Extension. 

For the past year, Sound Transit crews have been restoring and improving the Bog's wetlands to mitigate impacts from light rail construction on wetlands elsewhere in the city.

Now that the work is complete, Sound Transit and the City of Shoreline invite you to take a break and experience the new amenities and improvements to the park!

These include improved access to the picnic shelter, public artwork and arboretum, as well as new trails and interpretive signs to help visitors navigate and learn about wetlands and the park.

Take a look at some new photos (and some fun facts about the project!):

A picnic shelter, walking path and the 'Kiss' sculpture (a painted steel sculpture that looks like an X) are pictured in Ronald Bog Park.
The "Kiss" sculpture has been moved to a new location in the park. Check it out!
A large sign reads 'Pacific Northwest Conifer Arboretum.'
To enhance the park, 7,000 cubic yards of topsoil and 2,000 cubic yards of wood mulch were added.
A green sign on a wood fence reads 'Designated Critical Area,'
As part of the wetland project, 28,000 native vegetation plantings have a new home in Ronald Bog.
A colorful sign reads 'Ronald Bog: safeguarding our watersheds' with other text and images of wildlife including a beaver, river otter and great blue heron.
Crews installed 19 habitat structures for native birds, bees, bats and other wildlife.
A fence and trail are pictured, with trees in the background.
Around the park, 500 tons of crushed rock were added for trails, along with 1,200 linear feet of new split rail fence.
