Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) has replaced the sidewalk and curb adjacent to the park. Parks will be finalizing the integration of the sidewalk along Eddy Street with the park. Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs (Arts) collaborated with SDOT on a sidewalk project. Arts installed an interactive sidewalk chalk gallery, featuring low profile gallery style frames stamped into the concrete. The paving within the park incorporates a much simpler frame pattern in the concrete scoring, which is also suitable for chalk art.
The design features a piazza-like space with green edges, a U-shaped public gathering space with seating, a central lawn and a specimen tree located on a prominent corner of the property.
This project, part of the 2000 Parks Levy, develops a newly acquired property located at the northwest corner of California Ave SW and SW Beveridge Pl. into a new park or plaza. Originally the Levy named Morgan Substation as the likely purchase however, the owner of this site, City Light, decided that the location was required for providing electrical utility service for the foreseeable future. Parks then pursued the purchase of this new property, which was a former Monorail acquisition.
The Parks Naming Committee named the park Morgan Junction Park in May 2009 after receiving 17 nominations from the community.
