Baker Park Addition

Updated: August 13, 2019

Summer 2019

Seattle Parks and Recreation thanks everyone who attended the three community meetings and responded to the online survey for the development of Baker Park Addition. Input from the meetings and survey favored safety enhancements, a friendlier pedestrian and dog walking environment, and a butterfly-themed play area. The designers will rely on input from the meetings and the online survey in considering how to activate the park. The design will also consider the Crown Hill Urban Village up-zoning change coming up in 2018. View the preferred schematic plan here. Meeting notes, survey results, and presentation materials are located below.

The project team completed the construction documents for the project in April, and the Seattle Department of Construction & Inspections (SDCI) completed the building permit review in June. Bids for construction were received on July 17, 2019. A tree crew will be on site on August 22, 2019 to prune trees in the park. Park construction will begin in early fall.
