About

Baker Park renovation opened in 2020. Seattle Parks and Recreation bought the property southeast of the park, expanding it by .23 acres. The expanded park offers many features, including a new play structure with butterfly wings component, swings, large open lawn, a picnic area with BBQ, fitness equipment, and a totem pole plaza. The new totem pole by Haida carver, Fred Lauth, features three "watchmen" at the top, seen as symbolic eyes on Baker Park, playing a role similar to that of watchmen on other Haida poles. All improvements were made to meet Americans with Disabilities Act standards.

Baker Park is one of 14 pesticide-free parks in Seattle.

Current Project

This Seattle Park District project provides funding for the extension of Baker Park. The design incorporates accessibility in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as well as Seattle Parks and Recreation's intent to create access to open space in areas of high urban density.
