Horiuchi Park

Horiuchi Park, at Boren Ave between E. Fir and E. Spruce St has converted into a P-Patch community garden. A grant to the Seattle Housing Authority and help from the 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy funded construction.

On a small triangle of land on First Hill, with views of  Mt Rainier, lies Horiuchi Park. The Park is named after the late C. Paul Horiuchi, one of Seattle's best known and respected artists, for his invaluable cultural contributions to the life of the city.  Prior to finding recognition as an artist, Horiuchi owned an auto body shop some two blocks from the park on 12th Avenue near Fir Street.  The P-Patch provide gardening space for residents of Yesler Terrace and First Hill Neighborhoods.
