Seattle Parks and Recreation invites input on design of new park in Little Saigon neighborhood

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) is hosting a booth at the “Festi-Roll” event at 1025 S King St. on Sunday, August 26, 2018 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The design team will gather input from the community for the design of a new park. This is an opportunity for the community to learn about the project and provide input on the design of the future park located across from Lam’s Seafood Market at 1224 S King St. in the Little Saigon neighborhood.

After working closely with the community to identify possible new park locations, SPR purchased the .27-acre site in 2013 to provide the neighborhood access to more open space in this urban area. The design will provide a connection between King and Jackson streets and will incorporate accessibility features in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. SPR will work with the community on the design and encourages community participation. Fun activities and light refreshments will be served as we gather your input on the design. Please stop by our booth at Festi-Roll.

Funding for this park project is provided by the Seattle Park District. Approved by voters in 2014, the Seattle Park District provides more than $47 million a year in long-term funding to tackle the $267-million major maintenance backlog for Seattle Parks and Recreation as well as other facilities including the Aquarium and Zoo. In addition, it provides funding to improve and rehabilitate community centers, preserve the urban forest, perform day-to-day maintenance of parks and facilities, provide more recreation opportunities for people from underserved communities, provide programs for people of all ages and abilities, and acquire and develop new park land.
