Wellington Hills County Park would occupy 100 acres, purchased with $9.7 million in mitigation money related to King County's Brightwater plant.
A nine-hole golf course on the property closed at the end of September, after more than 80 years of operation.
The new county plans show four synthetic-turf and three grass-turf athletic fields, walking trails, parking lots and a mountain-biking area. Much of the parkland would be left wooded.
A master plan isn't expected to reach the County Council for a vote until next year, county parks director Tom Teigen said. An earlier timetable called for that to happen this fall.
A neighborhood group continues to object to the county's plans, saying the site is ill-suited for a sports park.
