Renovated Mathison Park Dedication & Arbor Day Celebration Is April 13th
Burien Parks will be celebrating the dedication of the newly-renovated Mathison Park, along with Arbor Day on Tuesday, April 13th beginning at 10am.
Since August 2009, the park has been undergoing some serious renovations, including 100+ goats munching brush away (see our video below), and more recently, some serious earthwork and grading to establish a new trail system and kid’s playground.
The event will include a dedication and ceremonial native tree planting, and refreshments will be provided.
Please note that there is limited neighborhood parking at this event, so plan accordingly.
