Community Invited to Open House for Maple Leaf Reservoir Park Greenway Improvement

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) and Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) invite the Maple Leaf community to an Open House at Maple Leaf Reservoir Park, 1020 NE 82nd St., Seattle, WA 98115 on Wednesday, June 19, 2019 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. We will have a tent and table near the north entrance of the park, just south of the intersection of NE 88th St. and 12th Ave. NE. Please join us to discuss what you value in terms of the north park entrance and what enhancements could be made to improve the connection between the Neighborhood Greenway and the park. 

SDOT Neighborhood Greenways program creates corridors through residential streets with traffic calming measures designed to give bicycle and pedestrian travel priority. Neighborhood Greenways provide people of all ages and abilities with comfortable and attractive places to walk and ride.  

With funding from the Seattle Park District, SPR is collaborating with SDOT to connect, enhance and activate links from SDOT Neighborhood Greenways to parks by improving access and amenities for pedestrians and bicycles.

During SDOT’s public process for this new Neighborhood Greenway, which is scheduled for construction in 2020, the community identified a critical connection between Maple Leaf Reservoir Park and the future SDOT Neighborhood Greenway at NE 88th St. and 12th Ave. NE. (See the selected route map below). We are collaborating across the city to improve connections to parks and look forward to working with the community and SDOT to enhance the connection between Maple Leaf Reservoir Park and the Northgate Neighborhood Greenway.
