There is too much accessibility to the playground at Beaver Lake Park. I am so surprised that a child hasn't run into the parking lot and been hit. It is a very busy parking lot during sports events and practices and often children are playing on the playground with minimal supervision (because parents are watching the sporting game). I think you could easily add a fence around the play area.

Poor


Please tell us about any SIDEWALKS AND CROSSWALKS where you have accessibility concerns. (Concerns can include lack of safe crosswalks, curb ramps at intersections, lack of push buttons for crosswalks, height of buttons, lack of sidewalks etc.)
There needs to be a way for pedestrians to safely get to the trail system along East Lake Sammamish Parkway from 212th and Louis Thompson. There needs to be a continuous sidewalk or trail along 212th so that children can walk from their bus stops to their neighborhoods and so children can walk to school. Currently there is no continuous sidewalk from south on 212th from the Pine Lake Community Center. There also needs to be a sidewalk or trail from Sunny Hills Elementary south on Issaquah Pine Lake Road. All the main arteries of the city should have trails or sidewalks to encourage walking and safety.

Sidewalks are not always continuous. The street crossing on NE 8th from Sammamish Highlands to Saffron is dangerous (other than at stop light, but both kids and adults don't always go there to cross).
