Morgan Junction Park Addition

Updated: May 28, 2019

Spring 2019

Join us at the Morgan Junction Festival to provide essential input in developing the new open space at 6311 California Ave SW adjacent to Morgan Junction Park. The design firm, Board & Vellum, has been hard at work incorporating your input from the first open house and on-line survey to develop the three concept designs. We are excited to present them at the festival. Please stop by our booth at the festival and provide feedback.

On March 1, 2019, Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) planning staff met with the Morgan Community Association (MOCA) at the site. Both SPR and MOCA are excited about this park expansion project. Soil sampling and analysis is being contracted now in preparation for site remediation. We are also evaluating and costing out the street improvements that will be associated with expansion of the park. We are planning to have two more community meetings to finalize park design.

SPR purchased this .28-acre in 2014 to provide the community access to open space within this high density urban area. The Seattle Park District funds the development of this parcel into a park addition. Seattle Parks and Recreation will work with the community to develop the design for the park. Please participate in the public process as we work together to design your park spaces.

Planning for this project is beginning and the first public meeting and open house happened on June 16, 2018 at the Morgan Junction Festival. Thank you to everyone who attended and offered ideas for the development of the lot right next to Morgan Junction Park.


Addition parcel is located at 6311 California Ave SW, adjacent to:
Morgan Junction Park, 6413 California Ave SW, 98136


Seattle Park District provides $1,260,000 for planning, design and construction.


Planning: 2018
Construction: 2020

Project Description

In 2014, Seattle Parks and Recreation purchased the .28-acre property at 6311 California Ave SW, north of Morgan Junction Park, to expand the park and provide additional open space for this high-density neighborhood. The design will incorporate accessibility in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and additional park elements will be incorporated after gathering public input. We anticipate construction and completion by the end of 2020.

The addition parcel will not be accessible during construction.
