Construction work and volunteer efforts have made some terrific improvements to the park - trails, off-leash area and a new playground. Thank you!
|The Pro Parks Levy project has provided funding
to implement three high priority improvements to Westcrest Park.
Approximately 4.5 acres of open space for dogs to expend some energy!
New playground equipment including a multi-level structure, swings, and spring toys. Nearby picnic tables, benches and barbeques make a nice place for other family members to relax and enjoy the setting.
One central trail has been widened and surfaced with crushed rock for ease of walking through the park. Other trails, one that leads to the upper meadow of the off-leash area from the north parking lot and a path along SW Cloverdale have also been constructed. Directional signage at key locations is forthcoming.

A 1975 master plan developed for the park (then called West Seattle Reservoir Park) by Richard Haag identified many park improvements that needed to be made to the park. In Spring of 2000, Westcrest Community Action Network and Friends of Westcrest worked together to develop a site improvement plan accomodating a wide range of park activities including among other ideas: off-leash area improvements, trail enhancements, and family activity areas such as a playground.
With the onset of Pro Parks Levy funding, Parks staff led a series of public meetings to identify priority ideas for taking through to construction. This led to the improvements you can see in the park today.
