The most recently completed “Upland” renovation work opened to the public on January 31 and includes improved waterfront with a hand-carried boat launch, a concrete boardwalk, covered gathering spaces, lighted walking paths, BBQs and picnic tables, a cultural performance stage and artistic signage.

The next phase of improvements at the park will be the “In-Water” work project which will provide habitat enhancement for the Be’er Sheva Park shoreline to be completed by the end of 2024. The final phase will include installation of fitness equipment and renovation of the play area. 

The Be’er Sheva Park project is a great example of public, private partnership with Seattle Parks and Recreation, Rainier Beach Link2Lake and the Seattle Parks Foundation.
