Project Description

Seattle Parks and Recreation maximized construction efficiency by combining three separate major maintenance improvement projects.

  • Pavement Replacement & Enhancement
  • Drainage & Sanitary Sewer Replacement
  • Irrigation System Replacement & Upgrade

Through the design process for these projects we identified a number of opportunities to make other minor improvements to the park. The work completed over the last year, included replacement of the park's pathways and paved areas, replacement of storm drainage, sanitary sewer and irrigation systems, new pathway lighting, modifications to the central plaza area with new café tables, improved pedestrian circulation, enhanced ADA accessibility and creation of a more functional community gathering space. Minor modifications to the parking lot and entry drive expanded available parking and address overflow parking on park pathways.
