Downtown Park Bellevue Downtown Park is a 20acre park located in the heart of downtown Bellevue, WA. The park was designed for passive and unstructured use, and as a "respite from the activities of busy urban life." The idea for a park in downtown Bellevue was created from civic and private leadership, which saw the City's potential for shaping its future during a time of rapid growth and development. In the early 1980s, economic forces were rapidly influencing the character of downtown Bellevue. Its center was emerging as a hub for commercial and business activity, and the city was seen as a desirable residential community. In the middle of this dynamic period of growth, the City Council and community leaders saw the necessity of creating an amenity within the City which would help define its character and provide open space in an increasingly urban downtown core. In December 1983, the City of Bellevue acquired 17acre within Bellevue's central business district from the Bellevue School District for $14.3 Million, and financed the transaction through Councilmanic bonds backed by a local option sales tax. In the years since the park land was purchased, approximately four acres have been added to the site. -122.2045919262 47.612584307679
Seattle Washington Temple The Seattle Washington Temple is the 21st constructed and 19th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Located in the city of Bellevue, Washington, it has a modern single-spire design. Due to its proximity to the Bellevue Airfield, the proposed height of the spire was reduced, and a red strobe warning light was installed at the base of the angel Moroni statue. In 1983, the Bellevue Airfield closed, and the light was shut off. The intention to construct the Seattle Temple was announced on November 15, 1975, and it was dedicated on November 17, 1980 by church president Spencer W. Kimball. The temple was built on 23.5acre, has four ordinance rooms and 12 sealing rooms, and has a total floor area of 110000sqft. -122.14091561396 47.584043548105
Bellevue Arts Museum The Bellevue Arts Museum traces its roots back to street fair art in 1947. After several temporary locations, it moved to the third floor of Bellevue Square, a large shopping center in the center of downtown Bellevue, Washington in 1983. In 2001 the museum finally moved into its own building. Located just across the street from Bellevue Square, the distinctive new building was designed by noted architect Steven Holl. It is seen by many residents of Bellevue as playing a role in the transformation of the downtown from series of suburban strip malls to a sophisticated city with a variety of cultural attractions. The museum subsequently ran into financial difficulties and was forced to close to the public in 2003. After a lengthy fund raising campaign, extensive interior remodeling, a slight change in name and a new focus on crafts and design, the museum re-opened on June 18, 2005 with an exhibition of teapots. In contrast to conventional art museums, Bellevue Arts Museum has no permanent collection. Rather, it emphasizes education and hands-on involvement through an extensive selection of classes and workshops. -122.20117808168 47.61535114349

Wilburton Trestle The Wilburton Trestle is an historic wooden railway trestle in Bellevue, Washington. Measuring 102ft high and 975ft long, it is the longest wooden trestle in the Pacific Northwest. The trestle carries a single track of the BNSF Railway's Woodinville Subdivision line over a valley that used to be an extension of Lake Washington. The line runs approximately 40mi from Renton in the south to Snohomish in the north. Before the abandonment of the rail line by BNSF, freight trains ran six days a week, including those carrying Boeing's aircraft fuselages to its assembly plant in Renton. It was also used daily by the popular Spirit of Washington Dinner Train, but this service ceased at the end of June 2007. The trestle was originally completed in 1904 as part of the Northern Pacific Railway's Lake Washington Belt Line from Black River Junction to Woodinville. It was subsequently rebuilt four separate times, in 1913, 1924, 1934, and 1943, due to deterioration of the timber. In 1974, a road, the Lake Hills Connector, was cut through the trestle, replacing a short section with a concrete and steel structure. Wilburton Trestle saw its last regularly scheduled passenger trains in July 1922. Several Casey Jones excursion trains crossed the trestle in the 1950s and 1960s. The trestle is a distinctive landmark noticed by travelers on Interstate 405 through Bellevue. While it is believed that this is the trestle pictured in the 1963 Elvis Presley movie It Happened at the World's Fair, further evidence indicates that that trestle was over the White River between Enumclaw and Buckley. Wilburton Trestle should not be confused with Wilburton Tunnel, which was a tunnel for the southbound lanes of I-405 under the railroad. The tunnel was located about a quarter mile south of the trestle prior to its demolition on August 16, 2008 for freeway improvement and widening. -122.181208 47.602647
