Thank you Seattle! This acquisition is complete.
On December 31, 2008 Seattle Parks purchased the 8,722 square foot property at 2100 Westlake Avenue (currently leased to Enterprise Rent-A-Car) for a new neighborhood park.

In November 2003, King County approved $900,000 to $1 million in matching funds through the Conservation Futures Tax towards this acquisition.

In 2001-2002, the Pro Parks Levy Oversight Committee conducted a public process for the first funding cycle of the Levy's $10 million Opportunity Fund. The Committee recommended designating $3 million for acquisition of land in three urban center villages: University District, Denny Triangle, and Pioneer Square/International District. In August 2002, the Mayor and City Council approved the Committee's recommendation.

The Denny Triangle Urban Center Village is roughly bordered by Denny Way on the north, I-5 on the east, and 6th Avenue on the southwest.
