Seattle Parks and Recreation Annual Report - 2007


Seattle Aquarium

The new 120,000 gallon Windows on Washington exhibit offers visitors a chance to see what's just beneath surface of the Puget Sound.The expanded Seattle Aquarium opened in June after a $41 million renovation.

The City of Seattle provided $24 million to rebuild the structure of the facility, and the Seattle Aquarium Society raised $17 million to fund new exhibits, an entry on Alaskan Way, a caf/catering facility, an expanded gift shop, and the Puget Sound Hall.

The expansion was completed on schedule and under budget and has resulted in a 25 percent increase in attendance. Perhaps most important, it provides a meeting venue to focus efforts to deal with environmental issues ranging from saving Puget Sound to dealing with global climate change.
