North Rainier Park Development

Review Status

On November 21, 2019, we reviewed the schematic design phase (60% design) for the North Rainier Park Development. At this meeting we approved the schematic design with several recommendations. We will review the project again at a future date.

Project Description

The project is one of 14 landbanked sites acquired by Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) to provide addition open space in neighborhoods throughout the city.  The project site is roughly 1 acre in size and is located along S. Charlestown St. between 34th Ave S and 35th Ave S. The park was originally proposed to be built on one parcel located at the corner of S. Charlestown St. and 35th Ave S.  SPR had the opportunity to purchase 5 additional parcels in order to expand the original park design.  The current construction budget is $1.28 million with additional funding from Kaiser Permanente to provide adult exercise equipment.  Proposed park amenities include an open lawn, gathering space, active play area, and street improvements.
