ABOUT THE PARK
Junction Plaza Park is a small park located at the intersection of 42nd Ave SW and SW Alaska St in the heart of the bustling West Seattle Junction neighborhood. It is a grassy lot that is slated for development into a neighboring gathering space in 2010.
When completed, the new park will be both a destination and pass-through. The design creates an open space geared toward encouraging casual daily use for relaxing, eating or people watching, that can also be used for Junction Association festivals like the West Seattle Festival and intermittent programs.
The intersecting circles featured in the park’s design are buffered from the street by landscaping, and can be intimate while being flexible enough to host small performances. The circulation brings pedestrians into and through the park on their way to businesses or parking.
Property in the West Seattle Junction was nominated for acquisition through the first funding cycle of the 2000 Pro Parks Levy Opportunity Fund by West Seattle Junction citizens.
On July 29, 2002 Seattle City Council unanimously approved funding through the first cycle of the Pro Parks Levy Opportunity Fund to acquire property for a new neighborhood park/urban plaza in the West Seattle Junction. The community also raised significant funds toward the acquisition.
During the second cycle of the Pro Parks Opportunity Fund, the community again successfully nominated the site for park development funds.
Funding from the second cycle of the Opportunity Fund will provide park amenities and develop the site to serve as a neighborhood park and gathering place in the heart of the West Seattle Junction business district.
