History
The site now known as Kirke Park was first purchased by the City as part of the 2000 Pro Parks Levy. Planning began for the development of a new park but there was no funding for construction. Luckily in 2008, Seattle voters approved a second park levy, the 2008 Parks & Green Space Levy. Formerly known as the 9th Ave NW Park, the park was renamed Kirke Park to honor the Norwegian heritage of the neighborhood. Kirke, which means Church in Norwegian also honors the site's former Church of Seventh Elect in Spiritual Israel which was a cultural institution of the neighborhood for more than 90 years.
