Little Saigon Park Development

Updated: December 11, 2018

Winter 2018/19

Thank you to everyone who attended the open house style public meeting on November 1, 2018. Approximately 40 community members stopped by Public Meeting #2 to review three concept designs proposed for the new park and provide feedback. The presentation and notes from the event may be viewed below.

Thank you to community members of all ages and backgrounds who engaged in the Festi-Roll event in the Little Saigon neighborhood just a few blocks west of the project site along King Street on Sunday, August 26, 2018. Over 200 of the annual festival attendees stopped by the Seattle Parks and Recreation booth for information on the new project and to provide initial feedback on big picture ideas of what the park should be. The presentation and other documents from the event are available below.

After working closely with the community to identify possible new park locations, SPR purchased the .27-acre site in 2013 to provide the neighborhood access to more open space in this urban area. The design will provide a connection between King and Jackson streets and will incorporate accessibility features in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. SPR will work with the community on the design and encourages community participation.
