SW Brandon & SW Findlay Streets - Trail Improvements & Wayfinding

Updated: November 1, 2022

Fall 2022

The  SW Brandon St. Entrance Improvement project originated from the SW Brandon & SW Findlay Trail Improvement & Wayfinding Plan.  It is the only funded project from the plan and we are excited to be moving it forward. For more information and details regarding the overall plan see the link below.

Camp Long SW Brandon Street Entrance Improvement Project

The goal for this project is to improve the entrance to Camp Long at SW Brandon Street by moving the concept from the Wayfinding plan to reality. This project is part of Sheila Brown’s (a long-time employee of Seattle Parks and Recreation and Director of Camp Long) desire to provide a more attractive, inviting, and equitable opportunity welcoming all to Camp Long. This is a public/private partnership and only made possible by the successful community fundraising effort. The original plan provided concept drawings for improvement to this entrance. Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) hired a consultant to produce the required professional construction documents for the project.

The project is currently on hold as we work through permitting requirements.
