Seward Park Torii Gate
$19,500 Neighborhood Matching Fund Small and Simple award
Construction: TBD as fundraising permits
The Friends of Seward Park and community supporters will work with a consultant team to lead a community engagement process to create a new torii gate to replace the one that stood at the entrance to Seward Park fifty years prior to its removal in 1986.
In addition to creating a new design; as part of the process, a site for the Torii will be chosen.
As a matter of information, the correct pronunciation of the word 'torii' is 'toh - ree - ee' - each syllable is pronounced. In Japanese, there is usually a vowel between every one or two consonants.
A portion of the original Torii Gate is a part of the Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience.
