Park Pointe is a 102-acre natural area located between Issaquah High School and Tiger Mountain. Previously the land was comprised of two farmsteads, and eventually was bought by a developer who intended to build an urban village in the spot. Through a series of negotiations, the City of Issaquah coordinated a transfer of development rights to preserve Park Pointe as a natural area, while encouraging development in the already growing Issaquah Highlands. The City of Issaquah had deemed to keep Park Pointe as an open space and is actively restoring 30 acres of wetlands.Over the past several years, the City and the Greenway Trust have been removing invasive plants from the wetlands which is the home of a small tributary of Issaquah Creek, an important local salmon bearing waterway.
Volunteers will aid in this restoration effort by removing invasive blackberries around native trees and shrubs, as well as infill plant potted plant material.
