Community invited to learn about improvements for Golden Gardens Park drainage and stairway

Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting a public design meeting for the Golden Gardens Park drainage and stairway renovation project on Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2015 from 7 – 8:30 p.m. at the Golden Gardens Bathhouse, 8498 Seaview Pl NW.

This meeting is an opportunity for the community to learn about the project.  Seattle Parks and Recreation staff and the design consultant, Osborn Consulting, Inc., will provide background information and the construction timeline for the upcoming project. 

This project provides drainage improvements and replaces the damaged stairway steps in the park from the lower park area to the dog-off-leash area. The purpose of the project is to renovate the existing storm drainage system and replace the damaged steps with a new stairway to improve the drainage system and related impacts such as hillside erosion. The work will be done in accordance with environmental and regulatory requirements.

We anticipate construction to begin by the end of 2015 and be completed in early 2016.
