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?
The information or links on this page provide the information that makes Seattle Parks and Recreation easily accessible to you. You'll find a link to our volunteer opportunities page, information on current and planned projects, our Public Involvement Policy, a link to the grassroots Neighborhood Matching Fund, and a link 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 2000 Pro Parks Levy and launching the new Parks Levy approved by Seattle voters in November 2008.
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.
