The expanded Bellevue Downtown Park is now open after a year of expansion and renovation. The updates to the park are part of a 35-year vision. The plan called for a circular promenade and grand entry on the south side. Other updates to the park include; a water feature and terraced seating, stairways and accessible paths.

Additionally, the Inspiration Playground was added to the Bellevue park, which was made possible by the Rotary Club of Bellevue. All ages and abilities can play and explore at their own pace.

The City of Bellevue bought the land for the Bellevue Downtown Park in 1983 from the Bellevue School District.

  1. Michael,
    Keep up the good work to show what a great place Bellevue is. Downtown is “the goose that lays the gold eggs”. Downtown vitality will keep Bellevue great.
