Angle Lake Park

SeaTac, Washington

In contrast to the busy commercial strip on International Boulevard, Angle Lake Park is a quiet respite with established Douglas fir trees and inspiring views of Mount Rainier across the waters of Angle Lake. The park dates back to the 1930s with a dance hall and water slide run by King County until 1990 when the City of SeaTac was established. MacLeod Reckord worked with the City to define a vision for park restoration and a strategy for phased construction. The architecture of SeaTac's signature park recaptures the classical features of 1930s WPA era. The restored beach provides public swimming and access to recreational waters of the lake and is heavily used by the community. The recent addition of water spray play area adds major recreational value and draw, providing more water play than any other spray play park in the County. Angle Lake Park, newly expanded into the second phase of development, also hosts the City's community events including the annual International Festival and July 4th fireworks.
