Project Information


Location: 16th Ave S and S Lander St

Project Status

Thank you Seattle. This project is complete.

The community held a Park Ribbon Cutting celebration in conjunction with the Childrens Day/Da de los Nios event Wednesday, April 30, 2014.

Seattle Parks worked with property owners, El Centro de La Raza, and agreed upon a schematic design for the park area.

We held a public meeting in early November 2012 and asked for community input on what would make the park feel more open and accessible, what cultural and/or historical elements they would like to see in the park and if they had any other suggestions for the project.

Project components include: integrating more publicly accessible green space, providing landscape improvements making the park more welcoming to the general public with new fencing, signage and ADA accessibility.

The Opportunity Fund provides $350,000 for this project.
Design: April 2012 - December 2013
