This project provides for new park development on the reservoir lid and the development of a comprehensive site plan for the park space, including the existing Maple Leaf Playground. This plan will be implemented to transform the 16 acres of open space on the reservoir lid into a new neighborhood park for northeast Seattle.
Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) is replacing its open reservoirs with underground structures that will improve the quality and security of our water supply and provide new public open spaces on reservoir lids throughout Seattle.
A series of public meetings were held in 2010 to gather ideas and creative input from the community for the park design. In 2011, a series of community meetings were held to gather more input to develop a schematic design for the play area.

How long is the "trail"?
The outer asphalt pathway is 2540’ so 2 laps is just 200’ under 1 mile.
Patrick Marold, Denver artist, installed his sculpture in the park funded by 1% For the Arts program. The sculpture is made from two boulders taken from both the Cedar River watershed and the Tolt River watershed. The reservoir is fed by both of these water sources.
