Notice of Partial Parking Lot & Comfort Station Closure for Construction Improvements at Gas Works Park

In early November, the east entrance of Gas Work Park, the comfort station and a portion of the parking lot will be closed as WS Contractor, LLC begins the Comfort Station and East Entry/ADA Improvement Project. WS Contractor and Seattle Parks and Recreation( SPR) will work to minimize the construction impact to park visitors and requests visitors’ cooperation in following detours and closures at the park. We anticipate opening the new restroom facility in early summer 2023.

The existing comfort station/restroom facility will be replaced with a new accessible all gender facility that meets Americans with Disability (ADA) standards and Life Safety Code Compliant Structure Goals and will be situated in a new location offering increased site lines and safety. SPR will provide porty-potties for the public during constructions.

Additionally, the project will make extensive ADA improvements to the east entrance of the park, create a food truck location in the park, install a new plaza, new seating wall and ADA parking stalls.

The Landmarks Preservation Board unanimously approved the project March 3, 2021.
