City of SeaTac Parks & Recreation Department

In contrast to the busy commercial strip on International Boulevard, Angle Lake Park is a quiet respite with a mature woodland and inspiring views of Mount Rainier across 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 the lake and is heavily used by the community. An expansive water spray play area adds major recreational value and regional draw, and an expanded picnic area with new shelters, amphitheater improvements, a second stage, and improved ADA access and pedestrian paths throughout the park complete the improvements. The park now better accommodates the City’s numerous community events including the annual International Festival and July 4th fireworks.
