West Seattle Junction Park Development

Updated: May 10, 2018

Spring 2018

Seattle Parks and Recreations presented three design options and gathered community feedback on the options during a public meeting in early February 2018. All the designs incorporated 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 stopped by the future park site on February 1 and provided input on the concept designs. And thank you to those who participated in the early February online survey, see the survey results below. The schematic design will be presented at a final public meeting this summer. Construction will be completed in 2019.

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