Greenwood Park Addition

Updated: September 3, 2019

Summer/Fall 2019

The contracting and award process took longer than anticipated due to an incomplete low bid. We are in the process of award and anticipate starting construction very soon.

Thank you to everyone for your feedback on the preferred schematic plan. We heard from many of you that the plan needed a skate element and we have included that update with skate benches to the north of the sport court. We also have added a hillside slide that will connect the play area to the upper park.

The new additions pushed the schedule slightly. We are finalizing our construction documents and anticipate starting construction this summer.

Seattle Parks and Recreation staff thank everyone who attended the three 2018 meetings and participated in the online survey. Your input, feedback and ideas were very useful. Meeting and survey documents are available below.

The Greenwood Park Addition project is located at 8805 Fremont Avenue N, 98103. With community support, Seattle Parks and Recreation purchased the additional property in 2013 to provide additional open space for the community.
