ABOUT THE PARK
This cool neighborhood park offers a playground for the kids, complete with slides and climbing features. This park also boasts 1 full-court and 1 half-court basketball courts, a small, attractive lawn area, and lots of trees to shade you on those sunny summer days. This park also features some parking on-site, so unload the car and enjoy a picnic!Acreage: 0.8
Webster Park, a .8-acre park which came into existence at the instigation of the Ballard community, was built on the site of the former Webster Elementary School. The park was built in 1997 after community members and a grassroots organization took up the cause of promoting increased open space in the Ballard area. Parks leased the site from the Seattle School District (SSD).
Seattle Parks purchased the land on March 18, 2009 for $1.6 million. This acquisition is one of several relating to preserving surplus SSD property for park use. It is anticipated that the City funding for this purchase will be reimbursed by 50% from a pending King County Conservation Futures grant application.
