Hing Hay Park
Parks and Green Spaces Levy
Location: 423 Maynard Ave S
We extend a sincere thank you to all the community members, community groups and local organizations who whole-heartedly participated. We’ve received a tremendous amount of input and inspiration and look forward to the next steps which will ultimately bring the schematic design to life.
Next, the design team will be refining the details of the schematic design and determining the best materials and methods to construct the park. They’ll be creating construction documents which will be put out to public bid, obtaining permits, and working with all the entities necessary to create a functional and beautiful park.
The design team is working towards the development of a preferred design through community meetings, youth workshops and listening sessions. The SEPA is being completed and the long permit process is beginning.
The community was super responsive to the questionnaire that was posted online and mailed with the community meeting invite. Thank you to everyone for your support.
The design team of SvR plus Turenscape has been selected for Hing Hay Park’s expansion. SvR is a local firm with great credentials for local projects, and Turenscape is a Beijing-based firm that will be partnering with them to bring an international perspective to the work. This team will provide professional services to renovate the existing post office site into an expansion of Hing Hay Park.
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. For most capital projects Seattle Parks and Recreation typically follows a three meeting format for public involvement. With this project, we'll also include a survey, and outreach at local events and meetings.
A group has formed a “Friends of Hing Hay Park” to help with fundraising and programming in both the existing park before construction and after the expanded park is completed.
This project will partially renovate the existing park, but primarily, it will develop the adjacent post office site acquired with 2000 Pro Parks Levy. See Acquisition for Hing Hay Expansion
