Once Echols Park is developed and open to the public, it will consist of approximately 92 acres of natural old growth forest, wetlands, and creek systems with a 26-acre lake and approximately 1.5 miles of a connecting loop trail that will wind around the lake and wetlands areas.
Future amenities at Echols Park will include a boardwalk, a small outdoor amphitheater, a boat launch for non-motorized boats, and fishing docks as well as commercial and retail development along the peripheries of the park. The trail will eventually connect with the City of Longview’s Boorman Trail along Grace Creek near Highway 80.
As the park continues to develop, we know community interest will be high. Please find some commonly asked questions below. We will update this section as needed.
