Project Description

Renovate the street-end pocket park located on the eastern shore of Lake Union with goals to:

  • Maintain the waterfront recreational use and character of the small, green pocket park serving the Eastlake neighborhood, enhance the park features with more durable materials, improve accessibility, and incorporate shoreline restoration, as appropriate
  • Incorporate an approx. 4,000 sq. ft. shoreline parcel addition into the park (located directly south of park)
  • Enhance waterfront recreational activities and enhance water views and water access of the park, restoring pier, dock and float
  • Enhance the park entrance and connection to the adjacent Cheshiahud Lake Union Loop Trail, meeting the standards of the Americans Disability Act (ADA)
  • Enhance landscaping, install irrigation and incorporate shoreline habitat restoration, as appropriate

During construction the contractor will need to close the park. Seattle Parks and Recreation and the contractor hired for the project will work to minimize impacts to park users and the community.
