Warren G. Magnuson Park is divided between three institutions. Seattle Parks owns the majority land and buildings within the park and rent office and other spaces to a variety of non-profit civic, arts, environmental, athletic and recreational organizations. The University of Washington owns land and five buildings which support educational programs. Solid Ground manages low-income and transitional homeless housing in six buildings. Bringing these institutions and tenants together in one place creates a vibrant mix of programs and facilities available to the community, and provides a home for these organizations.
For Seattle Parks owned buildings call 206-684-4218 for information about office space for non-profit and community groups.
Here are the organizations that currently make their home at Warren G. Magnuson Park. Please note that these organizations are not part of Warren G. Magnuson Park management or Seattle Parks and Recreation. Contact information is provided here for your convenience.
Magnuson Nature Programs
At 350 acres, Magnuson is Seattle's second largest park, and contains a unique variety of habitats that are home to a wide variety of plants, animals, birds, insects, and other wildlife. Since 2005, Magnuson Community Center has been offering a variety of fun and educational nature programs for children and adults.
Stop by the Magnuson Community Center in the park's Historic District for a map and a visit to its two demonstration gardens. Then explore miles of trails that take you through forest, grassland, garden, lakeshore, an exciting 20-acre wetlands complex, and one of the largest community gardens on the west coast. For more details on each of the programs listed below, visit www.magnusonnatureprograms.com.
Sand Point Housing
The Sand Point Historic District is home to transitional housing residences for families, single adults and youth. In 2007 the Seattle City Council approved the transfer of lease and title to the low income housing buildings at Sand Point from the Sand Point Community Housing Association (SPCHA) to Solid Ground (formerly the Fremont Public Association).
SPCHA was a consortium of several low-income housing organizations which managed redevelopment of the first residences and provided programs to residents. The year 2000 marked when the first residents moved into fully-renovated units in former navy barracks. The Family Housing Program includes 30 parents and 70 children. The Single Adult Housing Program houses 41 adults; Youth Housing has 24 young adults and six babies.
Some residents are continuing their education- and are enrolled in college; several have received their GEDs. Other residents have found new jobs or are engaged in retraining programs.
For more information about housing, or to be added to a mailing list for news about housing at Sand Point, please contact Solid Ground.

These buildings provide temporary storage for Suzzallo Library books; medical records storage for the University of Washington Medical Center, studios for students in the College of Architecture and Urban Planning.
