The 7,332 square-foot property at the southeast corner of 12th Ave. and East James Court was transferred to Parks from the Department of Neighborhoods in January 2008. Parks removed the existing building from the site.
This property is currently in the planning stage. For more information contact Susanne Friedman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Seattle Parks acquisition staff worked with the community to identify potential sites for a new neighborhood park. A public meeting was held on January 29, 2007. Two City-owned properties emerged as priority sites for the new park due to their availability and central location: the vacant property at the northeast corner of 12th Avenue and East Jefferson Street, and a smaller property at the southeast corner of 12th and East James Court.
