Park Infrastructure Philosophy

As a Heritage Park, NHHP will not be developed to any significant extent. Stewards evaluate each capital project to see if it fits with the long range goals and objectives established by stakeholders. All projects are proposed until approved by the landowner, KC Parks. All infrastructure projects are designed to minimize our park patrons impact on the parks ecosystem, or to improve wildlife habitat, educate the public or increase late summer flows in Chico Creek. The main parking lot will be the largest infrastructure proposed for construction in the park. If you would like to have your donation earmarked for the parking lot write PARKING LOT on the Memo line of your check. If you would like to earmark your donation for the bridge, write BRIDGE FUND on the memo line of your check. If you don't wish to earmark your donation, leave the memo line blank.

Build a Bridge

Bridge on Old Loop Road

If you would like to help us bring Coho and Searun Cutthroat into the parks wetlands, please donate today.

In order to facilitate fish passage, several culverts under Old Loop Road need to be replaced with a bridge. The bridge would allow natural stream functions and permit fish at all life stages to move upstream and downstream. There are Coho and Searun Cutthroat in the unnamed tributary to Wildcat Creek, and unused fish rearing and spawning habitat in the park. We are establishing a dedicated fund for the purpose of building a bridge that would allow young fish to rear in the large wetland above culvert 18. If you would like to donate to this fund, please make your tax deductible donation payable to Friends of NHHP. We will need about $1000.00 per foot, so a 30 foot bridge will cost about $30,000.00. Stewards have agreed to help with site preparation and do as much preliminary work as possible to reduce the costs incurred. Any excess funds will be diverted to the parking lot project maintenance trust.

Parking Lot

Concept plans for a parking lot to accommodate horse trailers and automobiles have been developed by NHHP Stewards. The criteria for location of the parking lot is:

Situated on the west side of the park to protect and maximize the wildlife corridor

Visible from the Seabeck Highway to reduce vandalism and nuisance occupation after hours.

Safe line of sight for highway traffic

Situated near existing infrastructure such as power and water.
