Thank you to everyone who attended the third and final meeting and open house in October 2016 and to Fremont Neighborhood Council (FNC) for their partnership. We have gathered your input. The design will include a small slide, pathway, gathering area, landscaping and irrigation. View the design with proposed play elements here.

This Seattle Park District project was funded to provide the community access to more open space for the Fremont neighborhood. In December 2010, Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) purchased the vacant .10-acre lot immediately west of the park. Subsequently, SPR and the design team worked with the community to integrate the park addition and develop both design and accessibility upgrades.
