Seattle Parks and Recreation values the community's commitment and support to our parks and green spaces. One of our goals is to actively engage and build relationships with Seattle's diverse population. From this page, we invite you to explore information on how to get involved with Parks and to learn the best way to provide input or participate in public processes. Do you have an idea for a park? Do you want to volunteer? Do you need information on current projects?
Links on this page provide access to our volunteer opportunities page, information on current and planned projects, our Public Involvement Policy, to the grassroots Neighborhood Matching Fund, and to the Board of Park Commissioners, who take public comment and consider Parks issues at their regular meetings on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month.
The Planning and Development Division is finishing projects from the 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy and launching the Seattle Park District. Approved by voters in 2014, the Seattle Park District provides more than $47 million a year in long-term funding for Seattle Parks and Recreation including maintenance of parklands and facilities, operation of community centers and recreation programs, and development of new neighborhood parks on previously acquired sites. 2016 is the first full year of implementation and will include funding to tackle the $267-million major maintenance backlog; and will fund the improvement and rehabilitation of community centers; preservation of the urban forest; major maintenance at the Aquarium and Zoo; day-to-day maintenance of parks and facilities; more recreation opportunities for people from underserved communities, programs for young people, people with disabilities, and older adults; development of new parks; and acquisition of new park land.
If you have questions about a specific project, please refer to the project page. You can contact the project manager listed on each project page, or call the Projects & Planning reception desk 206-233-3872.
