Little Saigon Park Development

Updated: October 17, 2018

Fall 2018

Please join us! Participate in designing your new park in the Little Saigon neighborhood.

  • Thursday, November 1, 2018, from 4 - 7 p.m. at Pho Bac Súp Shop, 1240 S Jackson St. 

Join us for an opportunity to learn about this project and provide ideas about the design of the new park located across from Lam's Seafood Market at 1224 S King St. in the Little Saigon neighborhood. 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. 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.
