Baker Park on Crown Hill
AmenitiesDrinking fountains Play Area
Baker Park has a small "natural play" area - no play equipment, only wood chips and two large rocks - with a pedestrian path that meanders through it, and a Totem Pole made from a monkey puzzle tree. In 2013, Parks and Recreation bought the property southeast of the park, expanding it by .23 acres, and demolished the house that had been on the property. In 2016, planning will begin for the development of "Baker Park Addition."
This Seattle Park District project provides funding for the extension of Baker Park. The design will incorporate 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.
