Celebrate New Entrance for Camp Long on SW Brandon Street

Join us! Feb. 10

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) and Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association (DNDA) invite the community to participate in a ribbon cutting celebration for the new entrance at Camp Long that honors long-time director, Sheila Brown. Please join us at SW Brandon Street and 29th Ave SW on Saturday, February 10 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The event will be a fun community celebration with food, SPR and DNDA environmental educators and naturalists, music and community.

The new gate reflects the west entrance of the park and provides a more attractive, inviting and equitable opportunity for all visitors to the park. The project includes an interpretive map placed at the Camp Long trail entrance. The project is the result of a pedestrian study done by Seattle Parks and Recreation Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) in 2019 and also a passion of Sheila Brown’s to improve community connections at Camp Long.

The new entrance gateway is a great example of a public/private partnership with the Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association as the fiscal sponsors managing over 125 donors. SPR provided project management with additional design work and implementation budget.

For the event, please park on 26th Ave. SW in front of Greg Davis Park and walk along the Longfellow Creek Trail to the event that will take place on 29th Ave. SW.
