A new park amenity is under construction - Bellevue Youth Theatre!
To better serve our community's need for more youth theater space and address other problems with the current Bellevue Youth Theatre, the city is constructing a new theater. Construction began in May 2013, with completion anticipated in 2014. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience with our construction. We will work hard to maximize safety and minimize impacts to your use of the park. Please note that:
- Crossroads Community Center will remain open during most of the construction. Community Center parking will be detoured to the closest lot - the north parking lot at 15801 NE 15th Street.
- Some walking paths through the park will be impacted and detoured.
- Please see the Bellevue Youth Theatre construction web page for project details and updates.
- Park - tennis courts, basketball courts, horse shoe pit, restrooms, skate bowl, play area, picnic shelters, jogging path, handicapped accessible. 34.15 acres.
Seasonal Community Gardens - Garden plots are available for lease both to groups of residents for growing fresh produce for local food banks over the summer and for individuals interested in growing their own fruit and vegetables.
