Water slide park to own May, 194 next to Lake Sammamish State Park Construction is now underway on an unusual new theme park and play area for Issaquah residents called "Waterworks Park." Planned by a Bellevue recreational developer, Waterworks Park will bring a variety of water-based rides and slides to the area along SE 56th Street, be- tween Lake Sammamish State Park and Interstate 90. It is scheduled to open in May, 1984, Centerpiece of the new park is a 50-foot tall moun- tain from which seven win- ding fibreglass slides will descend. A collection of bubbling spas will be available for the less adventurous visitors and areas for small children will be provided, according to Robert Betts, president. Betts said recently that special access areas for handicapped persons will also be provided, including a special ramp to the tops of the slides for wheelchair- bound persons. Included in the plans is an 8,000 square foot _pavilion which will house a video arcade, snack bar, gift shop, changing rooms and a glassed-in display of the 1,000 gallons-per- minute water pump that will feed the park's principal amusements. A water cannon will also be available in one of the play areas, Betts said.
