Lake Union Park closed for fireworks watching

I’ll be posting later this week about traffic restrictions in Eastlake on the Fourth of July. One development that might send a few more folks our way on Sunday: Lake Union Park at the south end of the lake will be closed on the Fourth.

The Parks Department sent out a press release today saying that the park will be closed because it’s “under construction, and not suitable for crowds.” A small portion of the park will be open to provide access to the Wooden Boat Show.

Lake Union Park has been undergoing a multi-year, $30 million renovation and is scheduled to have a grand opening on Saturday, Sept. 25.

Our report in April on Fourth of July restrictions is here.
