Pro Parks Levy History

In November 2000, Seattle voters approved a $198.2 million levy lid lift for Parks and Recreation.  The levy followed closely the plan forged by the Pro Parks 2000 Citizens' Planning Committee. The annual cost to the average Seattle property owner during the life of the levy (up to 8 years) is expected to be approximately $.35 per $1000 assessed value.

For more background information:

The Pro Parks Levy is designed to fund more than 100 projects all over the city that would implement park and open space priorities from neighborhood plans, acquire green spaces, improve athletic fields, add pedestrian and bike trails, support Zoo programs and maintenance, enhance park maintenance and expand recreation programs for youth and seniors.
