Reflections of Early Spring at Upper Paramount Pond

Paramount Park is a "Headwaters Wetland" and is a vital part of the Thornton Creek Watershed.

In 1998, the Paramount Park Neighborhood Group worked with KC Waterworks and other partners including the City of Shoreline to enhance the wetland by building two wetland retention ponds.
This brought a neglected and degraded area to life and created valuable wildlife habitat while 
improving water quality.

Is there anything lovelier than the tentative but determined progress of SPRING! At Paramount Park it is fun to take a quiet walk and focus on details.

Around the ponds life is thriving!

Take a walk. Even on a rainy day it is beautiful! 
Look closely and notice small things. Water bugs are emerging.
They are the sign of healthy ecosystems.
