Seattle Parks and Recreation and Freeway Park Association invites community to kickoff event for Freeway Park Improvements

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) and Freeway Park Association invite the community to Brews and Tunes in Freeway Park on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Please join us at Freeway Park’s Seneca Plaza, 600 Seneca St. to learn about the future capital improvement projects and park activation. The event includes a beer garden and music by Stucky Jackson and the Boys. 

SPR has $10 million in funding from the Washington State Convention Center Expansion Project as part of the public benefit package associated with the Convention Center expansion. The funding will repair, restore and enhance Freeway Park. The majority of the funding ($9,250,000) is dedicated to capital improvements at the park and the remainder ($750,000) is focused on activation within Freeway Park.

The initial scope of the capital improvements is based on the Finding Freeway Park concept plan, produced by the Freeway Park Association, and identifies infrastructure upgrades, lighting, wayfinding and possibly a new restroom. The design phase is expected to be complete with all necessary permits/approvals and construction bid documents by June 2021.
