On February 7, 1989, The Seattle Times reports that improvements are under way at Magnuson Park on Sand Point. A large knoll consisting of 40,000 tons of earth has been constructed overlooking Lake Washington for such activities as kite flying and running down hill. Improvements are also being made to swimming beach areas. The improvements are courtesy of the "Seattle 1-2-3" parks improvement bonds approved by voters five years before.
