Project Status

Summer 2016
Thank you to everyone who attended our public meetings. Please see the presentations and notes from the meetings below. Seattle Parks and Recreation has completed design for the improvements of this 8.7 acre community park. We are working on permitting and construction documentation. We anticipate the next phase of your park will be out to bid by the end of the year with construction in 2017.

At the initial meeting Seattle Parks and Recreation and Barker Landscape Architects provided background on the project, and gathered community input on park elements and design features. The park improvements focus on park access for all, safety in design with good site-lines, space for community well-being with recreation and gathering spaces, and an enhanced farm and garden.

As part of our commitment to outreach, the planning for this project will involve meetings with the Latino community, Vietnamese community, and other diverse communities of the South Park area.
