PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The community, led by Sea Mar, has collaborated with sculptor Jesus Moroles and the firm of Jones and Jones to redevelop an underused portion of open space into a spirited park. Musical stone sculptures, seating walls, a trellis, bus shelter, and plantings integrate art into the landscape of South Park.

In September 2005, the Seattle City Council unanimously approved $100,000 for the Cesar Chavez Park project.

Funding has also been received through a Seattle Department of Neighborhoods Matching Fund Grant, a Washington State Community, Trade, and Economic Development grant, and numerous private foundations and donatons.
