Seattle Parks and Recreation improves Bergen Place landscaping

This summer, Seattle Parks and Recreation will provide landscape improvements at Bergen Place Park located in the heart of the Ballard on the triangular site between Leary Avenue, 22nd Avenue NW, and Market Street.

The goal of the planting maintenance and renovation work is to increase visibility from Leary Avenue, replace plants that are at the end of their life cycle and discourage rodents from using the park planting beds.

This renovation work begins in mid-July 2015 with the removal of the hedge next to Leary Avenue. Seattle Parks and Recreation coordinated the hedge removal with pest control efforts and shared the plans with “The Friends of Bergen Place.” Planting of new plants will take place in the fall of 2015.
