This project will develop the .83 acre space acquired by Seattle Parks and Recreation in 2014 to provide the South Park community access to more open space. The Seattle Park District funds the development of this parcel into a park. Seattle Parks and Recreation will work with the community to develop a design for the park.

Please participate in the public process as we work together to design your park spaces.

Interim Activation
Prior to the park development and during the planning process Seattle Parks and Recreation will be working with the community to activate the space. Please visit Park Use Permits to reserve the space for events. Some community events, with enough lead time, may qualify for a Small Sparks Fund grant from the Neighborhood Matching Fund (find out more here).
