2020 - Project Suspended

Seattle Parks and Recreation and the City of Seattle are experiencing significant losses in revenue as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the summer of 2020, Seattle Parks and Recreation had to suspend capital project work and we were forced to suspend this project along with many others. The decision to suspend these projects is based on reviewing the projects through the lens of equity, health and safety, and whether or not they support an essential function. We are thankful to the community for their partnership and for their understanding. We will work to secure funding in future budget cycles.

View the updated design based on community feedback from two public meetings, and on-line surveys. The design incorporates play elements, gathering areas, accessibility features in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, streetscape, seating area and pet area. Thank you to everyone who provided input at the community meetings and on-line survey. See other related documents below.

Seattle Parks and Recreation purchased .65 acres in 2012 to provide the community access to open space within this high density urban area. 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.
