Bhy Kracke Park Improvements

Updated: July 25, 2017

Summer 2017

The project experienced minor delays as Seattle Parks and Recreation worked to allocate additional funding and finalize permitting. We anticipate going out to bid this winter with construction to begin in late March 2018. The scope of work includes installation of pipe pile retaining walls at the pathway behind the play area. Two additives to the project include arbor work (additional pipe pile wall behind the arbor, modifications to the arbor to remove the northern bay), and removal of the secondary switchback pathway at the lower garden with vegetation restoration.
