Baseball/Softball Fields Play Area Restrooms Soccer Fields Art in the Park



The 16 acres of park land provides a neighborhood park for Northeast Seattle. The design theme "Wind, Waves and Wings" was inspired by a community vision.  
The park includes the following:

  • a system of pathways weaving through plantings and trees, including two staircases connecting the upper and lower levels of the park. Note: The outer asphalt pathway is 2540' so 2 laps is just 200' under 1 mile
  • a viewpoint highlighting the Mount Rainier and Lake Washington
  • a series of rain gardens
  • a shelter and gathering plaza
  • a sports court area, including pickle ball court, a hitting wall, and basketball hoops
  • two ball fields
  • a play area boasting a zip line, children's garden, and other unique play features.

Maple Leaf Park features Patrick Marold's site-specific public artwork, Confluent Boulders. Inspired by the two sources of water that feed the Maple Leaf Reservoir, the sculpture comprises of two igneous boulders taken from the Tolt River and Cedar River Watersheds.  With the Cascade Range as a back drop, Confluent Boulders enhances our awareness of the region's natural resources and its connection to the environment.

Current Projects

Maple Leaf Reservoir Park Greenway Improvement

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) and Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) invited the Maple Leaf community to an Open House at Maple Leaf Reservoir Park on June 19, 2019. Approximately 50 people attended, and staff learned what the community values in terms of the north park entrance and what enhancements could be made to improve the connection between the future Neighborhood Greenway (along 12th Ave NE that will connect to Northgate) and the park. Here are the notes from that meeting.

Comfort Station Repairs

Seattle Parks and Recreation secured an emergency public works contract to repair the comfort station that had extensive fire damage from arson. The women's side of the restroom, where the fire was concentrated, will be repaired and updated to meet ADA standards. The remainder of the building will have ash/smoke/odor remediation and the exterior of the building will be cleaned and restored.  We have completed the necessary construction documents and obtained the permits. Seattle Parks and Recreation contracted with Ohno Touchdown to be the contractor. Portable toilets will remain in place during construction work. 

Construction Timeline May 7 to November 2019  

Due to a delay in delivery of essential components for the comfort station, restoration is anticipated to finish in November 2019.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation while we repair this comfort station.  For more information please contact Emily Griffith, Capital Project Coordinator at or 206-615-0075.
