Project Status

Thank you Seattle! This project is complete.
Seattle Parks and Recreation completed their project in May 2016. The DON P-Patch program is in the process of building a tool shed for the P-Patch use. To report graffiti or illegal dumping at the park PLEASE call the City's Graffiti Report Line at (206) 684-7587 or use the Online Report Form.

Seattle Parks and Recreation awarded the construction contract to A1 Landscaping and Construction Inc. Construction began in August 2015.

In September we responded to unexpected identification and location of previously unknown utilities on the site.

We anticipate substantial completion of the project in December.

Project Manager, Jay Rood attended the Fremont Neighborhood Council on October 26, 2015 to update the community on the progress of the project. He responded to questions about the project and is working to address their concerns by providing trash receptacles.

Harrison Design completed design documents in the spring 2015.

The park plans will include a P-Patch Community Garden, which will be administered by Department of Neighborhoods.

Project Description

The goal is to to utilize existing public land to create a new park in the heart of Fremont. The park would be a model design of a sustainable park space and provide critical pedestrian link to other areas of Fremont, particularly bus stops and the developing neighborhood business district in northern Fremont. Proposed sustainable design features include the use of recycled materials, native plants, minimal earth movement, tree retention, storm water management, solar panels and wind turbines.

This project was selected for the first 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.
