Freeway Park Association Updates: Moving from Phase One to Phase Two

From The Freeway Park Association

The Freeway Park Association is wrapping up Phase One of the Finding Freeway Park project after a summer full of community design and engagement events.

Phase One of the Finding Freeway Park project aims to engage the community in a concept design process to envision and create improvements to connectivity, visibility and public safety at Freeway Park. With a Small and Simple grant from the City of Seattle, the Association hired Site Workshop Landscape Architects to lead this process and develop conceptual design recommendations for future use by the City and the Association. The Association envision this community design and planning process as the first step to improve access to this hidden gem and to support this needs of the community within the changing landscape of our City.

Phase Two of the project, funded by the Seattle Neighborhood Street Fund, will bring way-finding improvements to Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT)-owned right of way (ROW) that leads to seven of Freeway Park’s 12 entrances. Site Workshop is also providing design services for this part of the project and SDOT expects to implement the designs by the end of 2018.
