West Seattle Reservoir

The Parks and Green Spaces Levy adjusted budget (Nov 2011) provides $3,455,00 million for planning, design, and construction.
Planning: November 2009 - October 2010
Design: November 2010 - September 2013
Construction: Winter 2014 - Spring 2015
Completion: Spring 2015
This project develops an overall site plan and implements improvements to transform the 20 acres of open space on the reservoir lid into a new neighborhood park and gathering space for southwest Seattle. The project will include artwork commissioned with 2008 Parks & Green Spaces Levy and SPU 1% for Art funds and administered by the Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs.
Seattle Public Utilities(SPU) is replacing its open reservoirs with underground structures that will improve the quality and security of our water supply and provide new public open spaces on reservoir lids throughout Seattle.
Lid construction was completed in 2011 by Seattle Public Utilities with park construction anticipated to start in 2012.
