LSPF History

Lake Sawyer Park Foundation (LSPF) is a grassroots, all-volunteer organization established to support the development of Lake Sawyer Regional Park through public awareness, fundraising, advocacy and special projects. LSPF was incorporated as a non-profit and got tax-exempt status (501(c)(3)) status in 2009.

 We envision the Park to be utilized for habitat restoration, as well as for both active and passive recreation. LSPF works in collaboration with the City of Black Diamond in providing a resource for funding as well as collaboration and stewardship on issues pertaining to activities and the future development of the park. Our organization has been actively involved with restoration activities on the property including habitat re-establishment, noxious weed removal, planting native trees and plants, and trail maintenance. In addition, we have contributed funding for benches and trash cans in the Park and a portable toilet facility at the trailhead. Some of our volunteers have been involved with this site since it was transferred from King County in 2006.
