Seattle Parks and Recreation invites South Park community to review four design options and provide final feedback for South Park Plaza Project

Although we cannot meet in person right now, your input is important to us! Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) invites you to participate in the final design for the South Park Plaza site. We have four design options. The design options are shown in the survey You may also visit the plaza site, 8456 Dallas Ave. S, and see all four designs on large boards. Once you review the designs, please provide input on the survey that is translated into Spanish and Vietnamese. The survey closes on September 30, 2020.

Visit South Park Plaza Site to review design options

Each of the four designs offers a play feature, lawn, and different types of gathering spaces. Please participate and let the design team know what is important to you. The design team will create a preferred community-informed design that will be presented in late 2020.

In 2014, as part of a community-initiated acquisition, SPR purchased the .83-acre site just west of the South Park Bridge to provide the community more open space. SPR is ready to move this new park and plaza project forward. We are excited to work with the South Park neighborhood to develop a design for the community gathering space.

This project was made possible by the voter-approved Seattle Park District, which provides more than $47 million a year in long-term funding for SPR, including maintenance of parklands and facilities, operation of community centers and recreation programs, and development of new neighborhood parks on previously acquired sites.
