Grilled seafood is coming to Coulon Park. Ivar's at Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park is working on a limited expansion to their restaurant there.

Ivar's at Coulon is considering adding an outdoor grill, so they can do more than have fried fish on their menu, according to Peter Renner, City of Renton facilities director. The company needs approval from the Washington state Recreation and Conservation Office, which handles the grants that originally established the park.

“We respect the need to honor the terms of the original grant that recreation is the purpose of the park," said Renner via email about the city's involvement. "We also support the added value that two popular restaurants bring to the park users’ total park experience."

The limited expansion would also include replacing Ivar's outdoor furniture and a minor facelift to Kidd Valley. There is no timeline for the construction yet.
