Project Information



Project Status

Fall/Winter 2012
Parks finalized the purchase of a .15-acre (6,650 s.f.) property, located at the northwest corner of 35th Avenue S & S Charlestown Street.

Parks is working to secure an adjacent site and is in negotiations at this time.

This 2008 Parks & Green Spaces Levy acquisition is the first of two acquisitions designed to provide this community with a neighborhood park.

The seller was Southeast Effective Development, or SEED, a not-for-profit community development corporation which has built multi-family housing projects in the neighborhood several more are in planning. Negotiations are underway to purchase additional property from SEED to increase the size of the park.


Project Description

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 North Rainier Residential Urban Village was included in that list.
