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. 

Community Participation

Please participate in the public process as we work together to design your new park space.
The online survey is closed. Survey results will be posted here by the end of March. Thank you everyone who took the survey. Your input is very helpful.
