ABOUT THE PARK
In December 2007 the Queen Anne Community Council made the proposal to name the park after Thomas C. Wales to honor the late Assistant U.S. Attorney who lived on Queen Anne and was very involved in the community.Acreage: 1.3
Seattle Parks and Recreation worked with the Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs to select an artist to collaborate with the landscape architects in designing a site that can be used for recreation and open space as well as to promote the value of arts and culture. The property was used as a gravel pit and for material storage prior to being developed into a neighborhood park.
