The King County Council has honored the outstanding legacy of Kathryn Taylor by naming the 27-acre equestrian park at Trilogy near Redmond as the Kathryn Taylor Equestrian Park. The site was originally slated to be part of the larger neighborhood development around it, but was preserved as open space through a land set-aside arrangement that Kathryn Taylor worked tirelessly to arrange with the developer. Kathryn's vision of this site as an equestrian park is carried on by KCEHC, who, in partnership with NW Parks Foundation, made her dream a reality, planning and managing the construction of the horse amenities at the park. These include a 100 x 200 ft arena with sand footing, a 60 ft. round pen, parking for trailers and access to the Tolt River Pipeline trail.
Note that the three Collin Creek trail bridges between Tolt Pipeline and 232nd Ave. will be undergoing major repairs from mid-Oct to mid-Nov 2015 and will be closed intermittently to all traffic.
