Parks to hold meeting on property in Gatewoood neighborhood

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to an informational meeting about the upcoming demolition and restoration of property donated to the City of Seattle in the Gatewood neighborhood of West Seattle.

The meeting will be held on Saturday, August 16, 2014 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the donated Watton property, 3823 SW Willow St, Seattle 98126 in West Seattle.

Parks received the Watton property and funding to demolish the house as a reserved life estate donation from George and DeLayne Watton in 1999.

Parks is working to complete the permitting for the house demolition and anticipates demolition work will occur on September 15, 2014 with restoration of the site and establishment of turf to be completed by April 2015. Parks will work with the contractor to minimize the impact to the neighborhood during this work.
