Select an image for a larger view.


Thank you Seattle! This park is complete.
Parks and the community held a dedication for the park on Sunday, May 1, 2011. Construction fencing came down in early October 2010.

The project provides a new park with P-patches, lawns, seating and a skate feature.

Updated information for the John Street Enhancement Opportunity Fund project can be found here.


200 Summit Ave E.

The Pro Parks Levy provides $287,788 for planning, design and construction of the park. The Seattle P-Patch program has provided another $150,000.
Planning: 2007
Design: 2009
Construction: Spring 2010
Completion: Fall 2010


The goal of this project is to develop a community park at the northeast corner of E. John Street and Summit Avenue E.

Parks purchased the .21 acre property in 2007. The current use, that of a parking lot, will continue until shortly before construction starts in Spring 2009.

Parks held a public Open House at the Cal Anderson Shelter House in November 2007. Mithun was hired as the Landscape Architect in charge of design and construction. Mithun later presented three design concepts at a community meeting on April 3, 2008. Those concepts, as well as the meeting minutes, are posted on this web site.

Mithun will be presenting a revised concept to the Design Commission on May 15. This concept has been developed in response to comments offered at the April 3rd community meeting.

A third community meeting is scheduled for early June. A concept, revised in response to comments from the Design Commission, will be presented at that meeting. This is the forum for public comments. Your participation is welcomed.

See the Pro Parks acquisition webpage for more information.
