ABOUT THE PARK

The dedication of Baker Park in 1997 culminated years of work by community members to transform the park, acquired with Open Space Bond Program "opportunity fund" dollars, into a little gem of a park in an underserved part of the city. The park complements the curriculum of neighborhood daycare and after-school programs.

Baker Park has a small "natural play" area - no play equipment, only wood chips and two large rocks - with a pedestrian path that meanders through it, and Totem Pole made from a monkey puzzle tree.

Baker Park has been designated a "Pesticide-Free Park".

Acreage: 0.4

HISTORY

The Whittier Heights section of northwest Seattle is underserved in parks and open space. The Whittier Heights Community Council worked with Seattle Parks and Recreation to make acquisition of this small park a priority for the Open Space Bond Program's "opportunity fund."

To develop the park, Groundswell Northwest and the Whittier Heights Community Council spearheaded an effort to get a Neighborhood Matching Fund award, matched by 2,500 volunteer work hours!
