Located across from the Renton Highlands Library, Sunset Neighborhood Park covers 3.2 acres and features a wide north-south pedestrian walkway, restroom facilities, an entry plaza by the library with seating and an overhead pergola, additional walkways, play areas, seating areas, and a large lawn for gathering and activities.

Phase II Construction

Phase II of the park is scheduled to open Jan. 28, 2021. Work began on this phase in November 2019 following the opening of Phase I in June 2018.

The development of the park is a catalyst for the redevelopment of the entire Sunset Neighborhood. The park provides ample public open space for the community.

Sunset Neighborhood Park contains unique playground equipment. The most striking is the Berliner Neptune XXL, a 30-foot high climbing structure. It is the only structure of its type in the Pacific Northwest and just one of four in the United States. Connected to the tower are two Helix Climbing Towers, one 19-feet and the other 25-feet. These three connected strictures are the only ones of their type in the United States.

The second phase of Sunset Neighborhood Park added:

  • Playgrounds (ages 2-5 and 6-12)
  • Parent plaza with picnic tables
  • Adult fitness area
  • Shaded seating under pergolas
  • Performance/open space lawn
  • Rain gardens
  • Loop walkways

Funding sources for Phase 2:

  • Federal LWCF (Land and Water Conservation Fund Grant) - $500,000
  • State Direct Legislative Appropriation - $3,000,000
  • King County Youth and Amateur Sports Grant - $175,000
  • City of Renton
