In 2007, the City Council approved a master plan for Lake Wilderness Park. The plan includes 10 separate blocks of work geographically spread throughout the park. Each block of work was to be phased in over a 20-year period of time to allow adequate funding sources to be developed and secured, while not having to close the park to visitors for any extended period of time.
The goal of the master plan is to create a tool to guide the future of the Park beyond a design blueprint. It will ensure that future projects undertaken, from capital improvements to on-going maintenance and operations will be a strategic part of making Lake Wilderness Park a more cohesive whole in keeping with the City's vision.
The final master plan for Lake Wilderness Park was created with input from a variety of people including a stakeholder group comprised of citizens representing a wide range of community interests. Input about the plan was gathered at two public workshops and at various public events held over several months.
In 2015, the City completed two improvements to aging infrastructure that were identified in the master plan; replacing the swimming/fishing dock (originally built by King County in 1972) and making much needed parking improvements.
In 2017, the City Council has approved funding for playground equipment upgrades at the existing playground. Future improvements to the park include replacement of the beach house/restroom building (also built by King County in 1972), with construction tentatively scheduled for late 2017 - mid 2018.
