This Seattle Park District project will create a new neighborhood park. It was funded to provide the community access to open space within this high density urban neighborhood.

The 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy provided $24 million for the acquisition of neighborhood parks in up to 20 identified areas throughout the City. The Lake City Residential Urban Village was included in that list.

Seattle Ordinance 123391 relating to the purchase of the property at 12510 33rd Ave NE was signed by Mayor Mike McGinn on September 23, 2010. The property had an office building on it, which was demolished in early 2016.
