To celebrate several milestones at Tollgate Farm Park, Si View Metro Park District will host a grand opening with a history walk beginning at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 18 at the park, 1300 S North Bend Way, North Bend. All are invited.

Guests are reminded to dress for the weather and to wear comfortable walking shoes for the event. Refreshments will be provided.

The history walk, along the park’s perimeter trail, will be led by Dr. Lorraine McConaghy, who served as the consultant and research specialist for the trail project. The trail project received generous financial support from the Snoqualmie Tribe and Rotary Club of Snoqualmie Valley.

Another major milestone at the park was the completion of exterior improvements at the Tollgate Farmhouse. With 4Culture grant funding through the Saving Landmarks Program, the farmhouse, a North Bend historic landmark, has been stabilized and protected from the elements in preparation for future interior renovations. Guests will get a rare peek in the farmhouse on Saturday.

Event parking is available in the parking lot along South North Bend Way. For more information, and directions to the park, visit http://www.siviewpark.org/tollgate.html.

Tollgate Farm is owned by the city of North Bend, and managed by Si View Metro Parks through an inter-local agreement. Since the park’s opening in 2015, it has quickly become a favorite with residents and visitors. With grand views of the surrounding Cascade Mountains, walking trails, children’s playground and large open fields, the site is a regional jewel.
