ABOUT THE PARK
The St. Mark's Greenbelt buffers Capitol Hill from I-5 and provides precious wildlife habitat, dense vegetation and trails. It is adjacent to St. Mark's Cathedral on 10th Ave E, and a steep trail through the southern part of the greenbelt is accessible from trailheads in the south and southwest portions of the St. Mark's parking lot.Acreage: 2.9
In 1993, the City adopted the Green Space Policy to encourage the preservation of green spaces in Seattle. The policy included maps for more than 30 green spaces. The policy aimed to preserve natural landscape and habitat; provide natural buffers between land uses; mitigate noise and air pollution; reduce need for constructed storm water systems; and preserve natural drainage.
