The future of parks
Help update the Parks Plan

We’ve had great response to the city’s Parks, Recreation and Natural Areas Plan. If you haven’t had a chance to add your input, it’s available in English, Spanish and Vietnamese. The plan establishes the city’s goals for the next 20 years.

Prevent flooding
Fall means leaves 

Our Public Works Department reminds you that fall leaves may be beautiful, but they’re also a hazard. You can help prevent flooding on residential streets by keeping an eye on the catch basins near your home and removing any leaves or other debris that may be obstructing.

October weekends

See spawning salmon in October at several points along the Cedar River in Renton, including the Renton Library, Cedar River Park and Riverview Park. Experienced volunteer naturalists will be available from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each Saturday and Sunday in October to answer questions.
