Seattle Parks and Recreation Annual Report - 2007


Magnuson Park

Magnuson Park will soon get new wetlands and five new ballfields.This past year marked the beginning of the agreement between Seattle Parks and Recreation and The Mountaineers Club as a tenant of Building 67. The club will renovate this deteriorating building as its new headquarters and offer free programming and access to its indoor climbing wall.

We came one step closer in 2007 to realizing the vision of the Sand Point Historic District. Late in the year, we held three open houses to discuss with the public our progress in developing concessionaire relationships with several organizations that will invest in the park by shoring up existing infrastructure, and offer unique, public access programming to the public. Organizations such as Cascade Bicycle Club, Building 11 LLC, Civic Light Opera, Arena Sports, Seattle Sport Courts Unlimited, and the Sand Point Arts and Cultural Exchange have all submitted proposals to the City. City Council will consider and vote on these proposals in 2008.

In December, the Army Corps of Engineers gave the green light to move forward with the construction of the Pro Parks Levy funded installation of five ballfields and more than 40 acres of wetlands. Other improvements will include the removal of a parking lot and restoration of the area to a wetland and the installation of pedestrian improvements at the 65th Street park entrance. The project is expected to go out to bid in the spring with construction taking place this summer. Completion is expected in fall 2009.
