The schematic design is complete. In September 2018 the Rainier Beach Link2Lake Open Space Steering Committee applied for more Neighborhood Matching funds to complete the construction documents for the new Be'er Sheva Park. Fundraising is ongoing to fund the park construction.

Thank you for sharing your ideas and helping shape the future of one of Rainier Beach's most incredible parks at the three public meetings presented by Rainier Beach Link to Lake. Presentations and other documents from the meetings are located below.


Be'er Sheva Park, 8650 55th Ave S, 98118


The Neighborhood Matching Fund (NMF) provides $49,700 for planning and design.

Project Description

Create a schematic design for improvements at Be'er Sheva Park. Possible improvements to the park's lakeside end of the S. Henderson Street corridor include: greater shoreline access, walkways, and art installations.
