Summer 2021

You are invited to participate in our 3rd virtual open house to discuss this project and potential next steps! The 2nd virtual open house presented 4 possible concepts for future improvements to Lowman Beach Park. Since then, there have been important discussions and much feedback. Seattle Parks and Recreation reviewed the work and have narrowed it down to two concepts that will be discussed at this online meeting.

The Lowman Beach Park seawall began to fail in 2015 and needs to be addressed. As visitors to the park have seen, the existing seawall is slowly falling over/sliding towards the water. SPR's goal is to remove the existing seawall and continue the shoreline restoration work that began when the south half of the seawall failed in the mid-1990s and was removed.

Location

Lowman Beach Park, 7017 Beach Drive SW, 98136

Budget

Funding for the planning and design of the racket court is provided by the Department of Neighborhood Matching Fund.

Project Description  

At Lowman Beach Park, the existing court will be removed as part of the Lowman Beach Park Seawall project. The community has come together to explore options to install a racket court because the existing one needs to be removed as part of the seawall restoration project.
