Parks acquired the Mt. Baker Ridge Viewpoint property in 2003 with funding from the first cycle of the Pro Parks Levy Opportunity Fund. Funding from the second cycle of the Opportunity Fund will develop the steeply-sloped site into an urban viewpoint park. The park design features a unique sculptural viewing platform that extends from the sidewalk to capture the western panorama of downtown Seattle, Beacon Hill, Elliott Bay and the Olympic mountains.


The community nominated this park development project through the second cycle of the Pro Parks Levy Opportunity Fund. The Pro Parks Levy Oversight Committee reviewed and toured dozens of nominated projects, and made its recommendations for project selections in May 2005. City Council approved the Committee's recommendations in September 2005.
