Sammamish Rowing Association boat house construction underway

Beginning construction on new boat house at Sammamish Rowing Association

King County Parks’ Community Partnerships and Grants Program works the magic yet again, this time with the Sammamish Rowing Association (SRA), which is building a new boathouse along the Sammamish River in Marymoor Park. The official groundbreaking ceremony is Sept. 12 from noon to 3 p.m. at Marymoor Park.

Public benefits of this project go way beyond the SRA’s youth rowing programs – which attract hundreds of kids from throughout the region every year. Part of the boathouse project includes removing some trees plus a whole lot of invasive species from the surrounding area – that’s already taking place. Later on, SRA will plant more than 10,000 native trees and plants in Marymoor Park to make up for the land clearing.
