Kubota Garden Perimeter Wall

Updated: November 14, 2017

Fall 2017

Thank you to the Kubota Garden Foundation for fundraising and moving this ornamental wall and gates project forward.

The 2012 Kubota Garden Strategic Plan Update, approved by Seattle Parks and Recreation, identifies the need to complete the enclosure of the garden. This will better secure and protect the garden and help to accommodate the over 65,000 visitors annually to the garden.

The completion of the wall at the northeast corner will provide security to and protection of the Garden by limiting access to the main entry gate. The access from Renton Ave S and 55th Ave S will be closed during construction and will remain closed permanently. Seattle Parks and Recreation and the contractor hired for the project will work to minimize impact to the neighborhood. 

Location

Kubota Garden, 9817 55th Ave. S, Seattle, WA 98178

Budget

The Seattle Parks District Major Project Challenge Fund provides $925,000 in funding for this project as part of the first of 2 phases that also includes a master plan update for the garden and the design/construction of an improved/expanded parking lot and ornamental wall on the south edge of the parking lot. The Kubota Garden Foundation will match this funding as required by the grant.

Schedule

Planning & Design: Spring 2016 - Winter 2016/17
Construction: Winter 2017/18 - Spring 2018
