2021 Phantom Lake Walk
Monday, July 19, 6 PM
A bit more challenging than other walks, but we should be up for it. Let’s meet at Lake Hills Community Park at the corner of 164th Ave and SE Phantom way, actually AT the corner. We will take the very nice walkway around the lake, but bring water – it’s a dry walk. Should be about 3 miles with some actual hills.

This is going to be amazing! Our President, Mindy Garner will be moderating a forum King County Executive and Port Commissioner candidates. Also appearing will be Bellevue City Council, East Bellevue Community Council and Bellevue School Board Director candidates. Think of it! Dow Constantine vs. Joe Nguyen. Hamdi Mohammed, Ryan Calcans, Toshico Hasegawa, Stephanie Bowm and and Peter Steinbrueck face off in their respective races and answer critical questions about what exactly the Port does and what they will endeavor to do for us. Jared Nieuwenhuis against Ruth Lipscomb to decide how best to move Bellevue forward! Newcomers Dexter Borbe and Christie Sanam Lo will do their best to show why they should have a seat at the city council while Gia Johnson and Lynn Robinson face off!
And for the all important Bellevue School Board Directors, Jane Aras will contend against Valeri Makam, while Joyce Shui and Faye Yang struggle to show who has the better vision for education. And last but hardly least Chiho Lai and Ross Gooding will each show why they are best suited to guide East Bellevue Community Council.
Stay tuned to this web page for the link to the forum!

Ardmore Park Walk, June 2021
Sunday June 27, 10 AM, distance? Maybe a mile, maybe 2.
Technically this part is (I believe) in Redmond, but who really cares? It’s a nice bit of not quite wild. By the end of June trail and tree maintenance should be done. Meet at the Northern edge on NE 30th St next to the play area. There is one through trail but several that empty back out to streets, and I believe an informal trail that links the 2 parts of 172nd Ave. Keep a sharp eye on the bird life, you may spot the so rare as to be almost mythical painted owl. The trail is a bit rough, so take your sturdy shoes.
June 2021 Eastgate Park Walk
Let’s cross I90 and visit South Bellevue. Take 150th across the freeway and turn left on Newport Way. Look for the South Bellevue Community Center sign on the left at 145th St; take the driveway up to the parking lot and meet in front of the Community Center.
This is a relatively challenging walk – not for distance but it is on a hillside. Let’s take our time and enjoy it.
Time: 10am to finish
Date: Saturday, June 19
Place: South Bellevue Community Center parking lot
