Broadway Hill Park/
500 Federal Avenue E
$1,975,000 from the Parks and Green Spaces Levy acquired this property. A $17,500 Neighborhood Matching Fund Small and Simple grant is funding a schematic design. A $20,000 Small and Simple award is funding design development.
The goal of the neighborhood project is to design and build a new neighborhood park that is welcoming for all neighbors.
The preferred schematic has been developed. It has a large lawn area, seating at a "front porch" area at the top of the site and on a seat wall alongside the sidewalk. There will be community gardening (as part of the p-Patch program), opportunities for natural play and for artwork.
Ordinance #123270 relating to the purchase of the property at Federal and Republican was passed by Seattle City Council on March 29, 2010.
This acquisition will help fill a need for open space in the Capitol Hill Urban Village area.
The Parks and Green Spaces Levy provides $24 million for the acquisition of neighborhood parks in up to 20 identified areas throughout the City. The Capitol Hill Residential Urban Village was included in that list.
Parks hosted a public meeting on February 23, 2010 to take comments on the proposed purchase of a 12,000 square foot property at the corner of Federal Ave E and E Republican St. (See the meeting notes below.)
