Pro Parks Levy
Thank you Seattle! Your support of the Pro Parks Levy and your participation in levy projects has benefited every neighborhood in Seattle. The Pro Parks Levy, an eight-year $198.2 million levy, has been an integral part of making Seattle Parks and Recreation a world-class park system. The future of Seattle Parks and Recreation is an exciting one. In this City, there is an energy and excitement about public parks that is unique and forward thinking. This is reflected in the recent passing the new 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy.
To explore the benefits and wonderful parks that the Pro Parks Levy funded please visit the pages below.
The levy provides funds to create more than 30 new parks in Seattle neighborhoods
and to preserve wooded green spaces.
The Pro Parks Levy is drawing to a close, with over 110 park development projects completed. There are a few more development projects currently in progress such as Crown Hill, Dakota Place Park Phase II, Delridge Skatepark, and University Heights. The Pro Parks projects include everything from habitat restoration to ballfield improvements to art installations to city trails.
