Wedgwood Landbanked Site Park Development

Updated: January 17, 2019

Winter 2018/19

New park coming to Wedgwood!
Seattle Parks and Recreation attended the Wedgwood Community Picnic, on September 15, to get the word out about the Wedgwood Landbank Site Park Development and receive input from neighbors on what kind of park they would like on the site. Many community members came to discuss hopes and concerns for the park as well as express their enthusiasm that the project has been funded. Over 200 people visited our booth and left comments over the course of the four-hour event. We received many exciting ideas that will help shape the design of the park as we move forward in the process. After reviewing submitted comments, the ideas with the greatest support were requests for a natural area or green space, play features, and seating or gathering space for the neighborhood. See notes from the event below.

Seattle Parks and Recreation purchased this .33 acres in 2014 to provide the community access to open space within identified gaps across the city. The Seattle Park District funds the development of this parcel into a park. Seattle Parks and Recreation will work with the community to develop a design for the park. Please participate in the public process as we work together to design your park spaces.
