Seattle Parks and Recreation invites community to help re-design Terry Pettus Park

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) invites the community to provide input on four concept designs for Terry Pettus Park. Please register for the online Zoom meeting at and join us online July 29 at 4 p.m. Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to join the meeting. While we cannot meet in person right now, your input is important to us!

SPR is excited to announce that we acquired additional land to the south of the existing park, allowing for a new expanded park design. Thank you to all who participated in our online survey in the spring. When asked, what features would enhance your enjoyment of the park, the community’s top priorities were habitat enhancement, native plants and trees, shoreline restoration, more seating, better dock and launch area for kayaks and canoes, and better access to the water. We also heard that better visibility into the park was desired.

The online meeting on July 29 is an opportunity for the community to meet the design team from Jones and Jones Architects and Landscape Architects, ask questions about the design and provide input.
