Lake Union Park, 860 Terry Ave N, 98109


The Opportunity Fund allocates $750,000 for the planning, design and construction of this project.

Project Description

This project was selected for the second round of Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Funding. The application received in this community-initiated process is a preliminary concept and the final design may be constrained by the project budget. All projects will go through Park's public involvement procedure which includes public meetings and community input. They will also go through an internal Parks process to ensure the most effective implementation.

The Carving Shed will provide insight into distinctive varieties of Native American culture and be a place where Native carvers are safe and the public is welcome. The Shed will include a living roof and the beach will have a carved Welcome Figure.
