ABOUT THE PARK
At Taylor Avenue N and Newton Street, a new park now in the design phase will be called MacLean Park. The park will include a viewpoint at the top overlooking Lake Union and the Cascade Mountains, and a grass meadow below.Acreage: 1.02
The park is named after the MacLean family, who settled in the neighborhood around the turn of the 20th century. The MacLeans built some of the neighborhood bungalows, and some of their descendents live nearby. The family owned significant greenbelt property and all of the park site, and sold them to the city for preservation as public space.
