Idylwood Creek flows through Redmond and Bellevue through backyard ravines, under West Lake Sammamish Parkway and through Idylwood Beach Park into Lake Sammamish. Years of erosion created a wide, incised channel with degraded aquatic habitat and high banks. These banks created a hazard for park users. Major modifications to the stream were made in the park to change hydraulics, improve safety, and reestablish fish habitat. Wood fencing and over 9,000 plants recreated a rejuvenated riparian corridor. RVLA managed the landscape architectural planning and design components of the project, including the removal and replacement of two bridges, construction of informational kiosks, fencing, plantings and irrigation and a new thematic play area.
