Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) has grading permit in hand and anticipates substantial remediation work in August 2023 during the dry weather. Review the schematic design here.

In the summer of 2020, the City of Seattle turned its focus to essential functions to address the pandemic and economic crisis, which required a significant reprioritization of resources. SPR suspended many capital projects including development of the Morgan Junction Park Addition site. In September 2022, the Seattle City Council, acting in their role as Seattle Park District Board, passed a new six-year funding plan for the 2023-2028 Park District cycle which includes funding for this project.

We greatly appreciate our collaboration with the Morgan Junction Community Association on outreach and engagement for this project.


Addition parcel is located at 6317 California Ave SW, adjacent to:
Morgan Junction Park, 6413 California Ave SW, 98136


Seattle Park District provides $1,260,000 for planning, design and construction.

Project Description

In 2014, Seattle Parks and Recreation purchased the .47-acre property at 6311 California Ave SW, north of Morgan Junction Park, to expand the park and provide additional open space for this high-density neighborhood. The design will incorporate accessibility in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and additional park elements will be incorporated after gathering public input.

The addition parcel will not be accessible during construction.

Community Participation

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) has determined that the project does not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment. An environmental impact statement (EIS) is not required under RCW 43.21C.030(2)(c). This decision was made after review of a completed environmental checklist and other information on file with SPR. This information is available to the public on request. The Determination of Non-Significance was issued February 22, 2021.
