Kelsey Creek Community Park features 150 acres of forest, meadows and wetlands in the heart of Bellevue, offering a glimpse of this city's rural past. Two historic barns sit prominently on the crest of a hill, overlooking shallow valleys on each side. These barns, listed in the State Heritage Barn Register, were once home to the Twin Valley Dairy.
Kelsey Creek Farm Park features hiking and jogging trails, picnic areas, a playground, wetlands, open grassy areas, creeks and forests. The historic Fraser Cabin sits on the hill adjacent to the park's historic dairy barns. The Eastside Heritage Center hosts drop-in programs for visitors, and the city offers a number of log cabin programs.
Kelsey Creek Farm offers a variety of summer camps and programs for ages 4-18. Campers can spend time with the farm animals, get creative with farm art, and have fun making new friends.
