October 2012
There are two phases of the Greenwood Park Improvement project; the Sportcourt and the P-Patch: both are complete

Phase 2 – Sportcourt

The Sportcourt is complete. It also includes a skatedot, picnic table and lawn. Funding included Neighborhood Matching Fund, King County Youth Sports Facility Grant and community fundraising. The ribbon cutting/opening celebration included yoga on the court and five-on-five basketball with Mayor McGinn.

Check out pictures of the Sportcourt and the opening at the right.

Phase 1 – P-Patch

Maroni Construction has finished their work on the P Patch at Greenwood Park. There was a ribbon cutting with Mayor McGinn, a Greenwood resident, and Michael Stringer, the chair of the Vision Greenwood Park Steering committee. (See photos at right.) In the second photo, you can see a part of a metal fence that is being created by local metal artist, Kim David Hall. This will go along the street as a creative theme linking the historical Interurban trolley line with the current bike route.

The community group will complete the work; this includes spreading the rest of the chips, adding the soil, adding the pieces of wood that surround each of the approximately 40 plots and adding the art fence.

As part of the P Patch portion of the new park renovation, the Friends of Greenwood Park built an innovative twig fence that will be an edge to the P Patch. A photo and article about the building of the twig fence is viewable at the PhinneyWood blog.

$48,500 - Neighborhood Matching Fund (NMF) Large Project Fund for southern part of site (application)
$ 60,000 - NMF Large Project Fund for construction of P Patch
$ 24,000 NMF (Small and Simple) for design

Design: 2009
Construction: 2011 P Patch
2012 Sport Court and seating area


This NMF project started in 2009. There are four parcels adjacent to the existing Greenwood Park. Two have been purchased by Parks and are available for design. The group, Vision Greenwood, hired SiteWorkshop to do a planning process for all four of them, hoping that the other two houses would be purchased eventually. The project started out of a desire to add a P Patch balanced with the need to add more activities for teens.

The community received a Neighborhood Matching Fund award in 2009. They hired SiteWorkshop landscape architects to work with them on a design. Three public meetings have been held to produce a schematic design. The design arose from neighbors' ideas for the park.
