In 1998, the City of Lake Forest Park bought the residential property at the mouth of Lyon Creek, with the help of state and local grants, to develop as a park.
In 2015, construction from the Lyon Creek Flood Mitigation Project has reestablished the floodplain by clearing and grading Lyon Creek Waterfront Preserve, constructing a floodplain with berm to contain flood water to the limits of the property. The property has been re-landscaped in the disturbed areas with ~4,000 native plants.
