Grand Opening Dedication

Ernst Park
Heishman Water Mover

Ernst Park

Thank you, Seattle. This project was completed in 2004.

2008 Addition

An artwork by Seattle artist Jenny Heishman has been installed at the park. The project was a responce to community safety concerns about the slope on the edge of the plaza.
The sculpture is titled Watermover and is a responce to the feeling of flow through the site and the way the park design references a flowing river.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Several program elements were identified in the Fremont Neighborhood Plan. They included plazas, wheel chair accessibility, and hardscape such as retaining walls and planters to mitigate the steep slopes. The Parks Department conducted a thorough and open design process with extensive opportunities for community involvement.

The park is oriented to the south with good sun exposure and is well suited to pedestrian connections between the library, commercial core and nearby single and multi-family properties.

In 2003, this new park was named Ernst Park for a Fremont resident who was instrumental in the implementation of the Olmsted parks plan in Seattle.
