Updated: August 1, 2016
Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) is contracting with Fischer Bouma Partnership and Richard Hartlage of Land Morphology to move this Opportunity Fund project forward. We are working on finalizing the construction documents to put this project out to bid out in early summer 2016.
Woodland Park Zoo, 700 N 50th Street, 98108
The Opportunity Fund allocates $750,000 for the planning, design and construction of this project.
Planning: Spring 2015
Design: Spring - Winter 2015
Construction: Late Summer 2016
Completion: Fall/Winter 2016
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 the SPR public involvement procedure which includes public meetings and community input. They will also go through an internal SPR process to ensure the most effective implementation.
Develop a five senses garden by adding enhanced sight, touch and smell elements with the intent to increase accessibility and providing a welcoming atmosphere and experience for all. The Seattle Sensory Garden is an expansion of the Woodland Park Zoo Rose Garden on 1.3 acres of existing Zoo property.
