The Lewis Creek Park and visitor center are community gathering places for environmental education and recreation. More than 80% of the 55-acre park is preserved in its natural condition. At the headwaters of Lewis Creek, the park offers three diverse habitats to explore — wetland, grassland and forest — all accessible by boardwalks and soft-surface trails.

Outdoor-only nature programs at Lewis Creek Park have resumed, and the facility is open to the public for drop-in use. Search and register for programs, with "Lewis Creek Visitor Center & Park" in the location field.

In addition to the nearly three miles of trails, the park includes separate play areas for younger and older children, a basketball court, soccer/baseball fields that can be reserved for practices and games, and restrooms open dawn to dusk, seven days a week. The 2,500 square-foot, multipurpose interpretive visitor center provides visitors with information about Bellevue and regional parks, family programs and recreational opportunities.  

Lewis Creek Park - open daily from dawn to dusk.
Lewis Creek Visitor Center - Open 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday. Closed holidays.

Inclement Weather Plan

Call 425-452-4195 before travelling to Lewis Creek Visitor Center to ensure the facility is open.

In the event of inclement weather, the Parks & Community Services Department will make every effort to communicate the status of facilities and programs, special events and rentals. Administration will decide whether to cancel a program or close a facility based upon the safety of participants and employees and the ability to appropriately staff programs and facilities.

As a general rule, if the Bellevue School District is closed due to a weather event, Parks & Community Services Department classes and programs will be cancelled for the entire day. If the Bellevue School District is on a delayed schedule, call the facility for an updated status report. Select facilities may be open for drop-in activities at a modified level. If you are unable to reach the facility, call the Parks & Community Services Department's general information number at 425-452-6885. Inclement weather can affect park use and trail conditions. Please use caution when visiting park sites during poor weather, as trails and other park facilities may become wet and slippery. Park trails may be closed.
