Seattle Parks and Recreation launches final survey “Fabric of the Community” for N. Rainier Landbank site

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) needs final community design input for the north Rainier Landbank park site located just north of the Safeway on S Charlestown St. between 34th and 35th Ave. S. Please get involved. Neighbors of all ages are encouraged to participate and provide input on textile patterns that are reflective of the Rainier neighborhood.

Please take this short online survey (https://seattle.surveymonkey.com/r/rainierfabric)  and provide input on fabric samples suggested by the community. The goal of this engagement effort is to narrow the textile/fabric designs we gathered from the community and incorporate them into the park design.

SPR has purchased two sites adjacent to the original park parcel creating a significant new neighborhood park that will be just over an acre in size and consistent with the community’s expressed interests. Park construction will begin in the summer of 2022. The park will provide multi-generational activities and incorporate universal accessibility in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. A Fitness Zone with exercise equipment for teens and adults is made possible by Kaiser Permanente Washington.

Original funding for this park is provided by the Seattle Park District. Additionally, to help with the development costs of the new parcels, SPR has applied for several grants. We are awaiting final grant award letters prior to completing the construction documents.
