Thank you to everyone who has participated in the design process for this park project. We have held two public meetings and will host a third this summer to present the preferred schematic design.

To participate in the design please take this survey and provide feedback to our design team.

The survey is an opportunity to view the three concept designs presented at the April 30 meeting and provide feedback. The West Seattle community is encouraged to participate. The survey will close on Friday, May 24, 2019.  

Community involvement is essential in developing this new park.

This project will develop this space acquired by Seattle Parks and Recreation in 2014. The design will incorporate accessibility in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as well as the intent to develop green space in identified gaps throughout the city. Use is restricted to low impact, passive recreation and impervious surfacing shall be limited to 15% or less.

Project Description

This project will develop this space acquired by Seattle Parks and Recreation in 2014. The design will incorporate accessibility in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as well as the intent to develop green space in identified gaps throughout the city. Use is restricted to low impact, passive recreation, and impervious surfacing shall be limited to 15% or less.

Project Goal

  • Goal 1: Provide a variety of outdoor and indoor spaces throughout the city for all people to play, learn, contemplate, and build community.
  • Goal 2: Plan and maintain Seattle's parks and facilities to accommodate park users and visitors.  
  • Goal 3: Engage with community members on parks and recreation plans, and design and develop parks and facilities, based on the specific needs and cultures of the communities that the park is intended to serve.

Anticipated Impact

During construction the contractor will need to close-off this parcel. Seattle Parks and Recreation and the contractor hired for the project will work to minimize impact to the neighborhood.
