The one-acre Ashland Circle park sits at the center of the first neighborhood in Issaquah Highlands, an urban village that houses over 7,000 people. The park includes an amphitheater for public gatherings, a children’s playground, a stream channeled through the park and a grass-covered activity field. The park area is encircled by benches, columns and carved light post largely created from river rocks and cedar trees recovered from the site.
