Community group to gather in advance of Little Lake Forest meeting

The pre-meeting is this Saturday, April 20.

The Enumclaw Plateau Community Association will be hosting Daphne Payne of King County Parks, to talk about the new county park, Little Lake Forest.

The public meeting is slated for 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday, April 20 in the Enumclaw High School commons.

“I believe Little Lake Forest could soon become a treasured asset to our local community and King County,” said EPCA member Tim O’Brien.

The main objective of her talk will be to get people to attend a community public comment meeting April 29 (Enumclaw High School Commons, 6:00-8:00pm) hosted by the County to solicit ideas and comments about how Little Lake Forest Park should be designed and used in the future.

Little Lake Forest, formerly the Lady Dyar wedding venue just east of Enumclaw, is wedged into the foothills forest land owned by the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe and has the potential to act as a trailhead for non-motorized recreation into these wider forest lands/Boise Ridge. There is currently no formal access point for the general public, unless you drive up state Route 410.

Access to the Muckleshoot land requires a permit issued by Hancock Forest Management.
