About

Lowman Beach is small, but like beaches everywhere, it has some surprises...it includes about 300 feet of rocky, saltwater shoreline a few blocks north of Lincoln Park. Above the beach is an acre of grass with tennis courts, swings...view of the Olympics, Alki Point, and Williams Point spread out in three directions. (Excerpt from Enjoying Seattle's Parks by Brandt Morgan.) The entire shoreline is available for hand carry boat launch.

The Lowman Beach Park seawall is failing and needs to be removed. As visitors to the park have seen, the existing seawall is slowly falling over/sliding towards the water. It is Seattle Parks and Recreation's goal to remove the remaining seawall and continue the shoreline restoration work that began when the south half of the seawall failed in the mid-1990s.

In May 2017, together with Environmental Science Associates (ESA) design consultant, we presented design options.  We hired ESA as a design consultant, as a follow-up to the feasibility study to continue the design process that began with the feasibility study. The design will take into consideration both the habitat benefits of the seawall removal and the coastal engineering ramifications of that seawall removal. Given the design constraints of the project, the existing tennis court will be removed. A remnant of Pelly Creek that currently flows under the seawall will be daylighted as part of the project.
