  • 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.
