Participate in final Online Open House for Victor Steinbrueck Park improvement project

Seattle Parks and Recreation(SPR) encourages the community to participate in the final Victor Steinbrueck Park Online Open House. Visit the Online Open House at http://vspark.participate.online/  from March 9 through March 30, 2018.

The 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy allocated funding to improve Victor Steinbrueck Park. The project includes improving sight lines into the park, providing better connections and circulation, improving and expanding lighting, and upgrading seating and landscaping. The park sits atop a privately-owned parking garage. The membrane between the westerly portion of the park and the parking garage below is failing. Major repairs to, or complete replacement of the membrane, will be necessary as part of any improvements to the park. We are in the final design phase of this project and anticipate construction beginning in 2019.

SPR has been and will continue to be engaging organizations including the Chief Seattle Club, the Friends of Market, surrounding residents and businesses, as well as homeless advocates regarding the park. We have hosted two public meetings, held an online Open House, conducted surveys in the park and on-line, and have presented to the Pike Place Market Historical Commission Design Review Committee throughout the design process.
