How to Build a Park

The north lot of
our park (6219 17th Ave NW) has been purchased by the city of Seattle and is
essentially a vacant lot.  

The city is attempting to purchase the the south
lot (1702 NW 62 St) with its residence, which has been unoccupied for approximately 15
years.  

 

A small and
simple grant from the City
of Seattle’s Department of Neighborhoods
for $15,000 is being used to design
and develop a plan for the park
space.  

Barker
Landscape Architects
has been selected to design the park with input from
three community meetings and the guidance of the steering committee. 

Seattle Parks and
Recreation through its Pro Parks Levy worked to acquire the property and will be
responsible for maintenance.  They are helping to guide the process.  $150,000 has been pledged by the Pro Parks Levy
toward construction costs.  We will be seeking additional monies through grants to assist us in building the park that the
community wants on this property.

We need your
input and contributions to make this park a reality.  Please help
us
!  Come to our community
meetings
or donate to our project (volunteer labor and goods).
